    Coronavirus sent shockwaves through ASEAN in recent weeks, leading many panelists to downgrade forecasts, particularly in Malaysia, Singapore  and Thailand.

    East Asian economies set to lose momentum in 2020

    East Asian economic growth is expected to slow for the third consecutive year in 2020 as the coronavirus outbreak deepens the Chinese slowdown and disrupts regional supply chains and travel. Accommodative fiscal and monetary policies should support growth, although an intensification of the coronavirus and trade tensions represent downside risks.

    Growth slipped in the final quarter of 2019 as the French and Italian economies both unexpectedly contracted. More broadly, prolonged weakness in the bloc’s industrial sector amid weak external demand, coupled with policy uncertainties at home, have likely continued to constrain growth. Improved economic sentiment and a stable PMI in January, however, suggest momentum strengthened somewhat at the start of 2020. Meanwhile, in politics, Irish voters head to the polls; Slovenia’s Prime Minister resigned on disputes over healthcare funding; Austria’s conservative People’s Party struck an unprecedented coalition deal with the Greens; Pedro Sánchez was confirmed as Spain's prime minister; and Italy’s ruling coalition seems to have dodged a government crisis.

    Regional growth should recover this year following a poor performance in 2019, due to a much smaller contraction in Iran and an improvement in the oil sector thanks to a favorable base of comparison. However, OPEC+ cuts will still cap the oil sector’s contribution, while widespread geopolitical tensions and social unrest in several countries pose downside risks to the outlook.
