APAC has recently been described by the IMF as a “bright spot in a slowing global economy”. It is forecast to be the fastest-growing region in the world economy in 2023, with the IMF estimating that it will contribute 70% of global growth throughout the course of the year. China and India alone are set to contribute more than half of overall global growth, while the likes of Cambodia, Malaysia and the Philippines are returning to robust pre-pandemic growth.
