Country Report
The article focuses on the economic conditions in South East Asia. South East Asia is set to remain one of the fastest growing regions in the world economy. Although the economic impact of the giant tsunami of December 26, 2004 is expected to be relatively small, the impact of avian bird flu, which has decimated poultry stocks in the region, could be more serious. Another concern is an economic slowdown in the U.S. and China, which would hit export demand. The impact of the economic slowdown in the U.S. would be exacerbated if the U.S. dollar experienced a sharp fall. This would reduce the competitiveness of all of the country's exports to the U.S., and lead to a further drop in exports.
