post date : 2021.09.28
Led by China and India, Asia has been called the world’s economic growth center, but with the continued spread of COVID-19, the appearance of variant strains, and inequal distribution of vaccines, how the recovery from the pandemic will play out remains unclear.
The Asian Development Bank has predicted that the economies of developing countries in Asia will grow by 7.2% this year, but how will the recovery proceed for the Asian economy overall, which has a major impact on the global economy? What key points will be most important to this recovery?
