Country Report
The article focuses on the economic growth in South East Asia. The economic growth in South East Asia is set to slow in 2005, after the region grew by 6.3% last year. One of the main risks to growth this year is the high oil price. The impact of higher oil prices is already being felt across the region, with a number of countries recording trade deficits in the first half of this year, and most countries forecast to experience slower growth this year, compared with 2004. Asia is more vulnerable to higher oil prices than any other continent.
