Asian economy set for 6.5 percent growth in 2021

The Asian economy is expected to grow 6.5 percent in 2021, and will be a strong part of sustainable global recovery, according to reports released by the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Sunday. 

The fastest growth region will be South Asia, which consists of Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, the Maldives, and Sri Lanka.

The report noted that Asia economies’ pivot to a digital economy and advancing digital infrastructure construction has helped to “promote production resumption, stabilized the economic situation, and become a new driving force for Asia’s economic growth in the future.”
