    Economic outlook for 2021 brightens

    ASEAN GDP growth is set to pick up markedly this year as external demand rebounds.

    CIS Plus GDP to rebound in 2021

    The CIS Plus GDP is expected to rebound in 2021, on easing lockdown measures as Covid-19 vaccines are gradually rolled out.

That said, geopolitical tensions, new Covid-19 strains and slow vaccine rollout cloud the outlook.
