ASIA/USA – Asia Is Waiting for Biden (Alon Levkowitz, BESA Center)

While President Donald Trump’s Asia policy was not a central issue in the 2020 US presidential election, it had a huge impact on the American economy and security during his term as well as on Washington’s relations with countries in the region. President-elect Joe Biden will need to decide whether to tilt back toward Asia to balance China or leave Asia to China.

ASIA – ADB predicts a less severe economic dip for Asia (Al Jazeera)

Developing Asia is on course to contract this year, but probably less than previously thought as China’s economy enjoys a faster than expected recovery, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) said on Thursday.

Economic growth in developing Asia, a group of 45 nations in the Asia-Pacific, is expected to shrink 0.4 percent this year, the ADB said in an update to September’s Asian Development Outlook report, short of its earlier estimate for a 0.7 percent decline. For 2021, the region is forecast to grow 6.8 percent, the bank said.
