Launch of the Asian Development Bank's Flagship Publication, Asian Development Outlook 2011
Changyong Rhee spoke at the Wilson Center to launch the
Asian Development Bank's flagship publication Asian Development Outlook 2011.
The Asian Development Outlook is an annual economic report that provides a
comprehensive analysis of macroeconomic and development issues of the
developing member countries of the Asian Development Bank. Dr. Rhee
focused on the report's theme of South-South economic linkages. He spoke
on the changing economic center of gravity from the North to the South and
the opportunities this shift opens up for developing countries in Asia. The
report includes empirical evidence and discusses policy options for developing
Asian countries to benefit from the rising economic power of emerging
markets through trade and investment.
