Country Report
The article presents statistical information related to economic indicators of various South East Asian countries. South East Asia is set to be one of the top performing regions of the world economy. However, a slowdown in the U.S. remains a major concern. The impact of any slowdown will be exacerbated if the region's currencies continue to appreciate against the U.S. dollar. Over the last year, for example, the Thai baht has appreciated against the greenback by 12.7%. Some of the South East Asian countries included in this article are Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore.
