McKinsey & Company report on regional trends in the ASEAN countries - March 2017

Management consulting firm McKinsey&Company analyses macroeconomic trends, financial markets and government and policy in the ASEAN countries. The ASEAN economies showed signs of consolidating the robust gains of the past several months. Retails sales continued to grow across the region, but the pace of growth slowed slightly from previous months. Retail sales growth in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam moderated, while improving slightly in the Philippines and Singapore. Industrial production growth grew at a slower pace in the region and inflation is becoming a concern for many ASEAN countries, in part driven by imported inflation as a result of the strong US dollar. See the report for the full analysis.
