Regional Economy : Slower Growth

% GDP GROWTH 2010 2011 2012






















• Asian NIEs (South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore) are expected to slow from

8.4% in 2010 to 4.7% in 2011 and 4.5% in 2012 .

• Real GDP growth of ASEAN-5 (Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines)

is projected to slow from 6.9% (2010) to 5.0% this year and 4.6% in 2012.

• The bigger quantum of slowdown in Asian NIEs compared to ASEAN-5 reflects the

base effect from the double-digit growth in 2010 (i.e. Singapore, Taiwan) and the

greater dependence or exposure on global trade and financial services in Asian

NIEs relative to ASEAN-5.

• Recent events over the last 6 months have changed the global economic and geopolitical

landscape and impacted oil prices significantly.

• There are mainly 3 factors that impact fundamental oil prices i.e. demand, supply and cost of

production. Considering these fundamentals, a floor price of approximately USD 75 -90 /bbl can

be considered as reasonable.

• Apart from the fundamentals, financial markets have been playing a significant role in defining oil

prices. Taking cognizance of this additional variable, the oil prices could be projected to be

around the USD 94 - 98/bbl range.
