The article presents information on the economic growth in South East Asia during 2005. One of the main risks this year was the high oil price, which is likely to grow slowly in all of Asia's main economies while oil prices are expected to be depreciated next year or in 2007. Asia is the most effected continent in terms of higher oil prices. Another major risk to growth is avian bird flu. The impact of a bird flu-type virus would be more severe than Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome caused by member of Corona Virus family, which hit the region in 2003, because bird flu virus would be transmitted much more easily between humans.
