Cambodia to see strong growth despite political uncertainties, says ADB

Growth in China's economy, the world's second biggest, is set to cool to 6.6 percent in 2018 and 6.4 percent in 2019 after logging 6.9 percent growth past year, it said.

India's economic growth will pick up in 2018-19 to 7.3% on the back of improved rural consumption and a modest rise in private investment while the debilitating effects of demonetisation and goods and services tax (GST) implementation dissipate, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) said on Wednesday.

The World Bank on Sunday forecast the expected GDP growth 6.5 percent while ADB forecast seven percent. "Imports are forecast to decline by 6.0% in 2018, exports are projected to grow by 13.0% in 2018", the bank said.

The deferment of fiscal consolidation, upside risks to inflation, and expected hikes in U.S. interest rates in 2018 squeeze maneuvering room for policy rate cuts to stimulate growth.
