Country Report
South East Asia is forecast to enjoy strong growth in 2004, making up for some of the ground lost since the Asian financial crisis. Vietnam is expected to be the fastest growing of the countries covered in this report, and is forecast to grow by 7.4 percent in 2004. Thailand is forecast to grow by 6.8 percent, while Cambodia is expected to grow by 6.2 percent and Laos by 6.1 percent. The outbreak of avian flu, which caused so much concern at the start of the year, having failed to generate any cases of human-to-human infection, is unlikely to have any major impact on the regional economy.
