The Asia region covers 39 percent of the world’s product trade and 32 percent of the world’s service trade. The strength of the region builds on the stability of Japan and South Korea, and the rise of China, joined recently by the ASEAN countries and India. COVID-19 puts a test to economic progress in the region. The session will focus on how the Asian economies are responding and adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic and how the landscape in the region might evolve post-COVID19.
