IMF Asia Regional Outlook

Some highlights:

Pakistan is missing from the summary of the Regional Outlook. Bangladesh has grown faster than India in the last two years (2016 and 2017). In 2018, India and Bangladesh are projected to grow at the same rate. In 2019, India is expected to overtake Bangladesh in its growth rate. Other than Bangladesh, Nepal, Mongolia and Thailand have seen their growth rates revised higher. Everyone else has their growth rate revised lower.

The only thing that IMF could say is that countries should open up their Services sector. I think that they are running out of ideas.
