Page 9 (Chapter 1) was replaced to add the final line of note 1 in Figure 1.9.

Page 15 (Chapter 1) was replaced to add a source for the figure.

Regional Economic Outlook, April 2016, Asia and Pacific : Building on Asia's Strengths during Turbulent Times 

On page 53, the last paragraph erroneously states “0.1 percentage point decline in consumption growth”; the sentence should state “0.1 percentage point increase in consumption growth”. Therefore the correct sentence is as below:

"In contrast, what happened in China is a 0.1 percentage point increase in consumption growth and a 5.5 percentage point decline in investment growth."

 

On page 54, the first paragraph erroneously states “consumption growth increased by 3.1 percentage points [–0.1 – (–3) = 3.1]”; this should have been included as “3.1 percentage points [0.1 – (–3) = 3.1]”. Therefore the correct sentence is as below:

"We can then assume the following rebalancing effect in China between the 2001–07 and 2011–15 periods: consumption growth increased by 3.1 percentage points [0.1 – (–3) = 3.1], and investment growth declined by 2.5 percentage points [–5.5 – (–3) = –2.5]."

 

On page 57, figure 2.10 panel 1’s FX series for the pre-GFC period is erroneously reflected as 0.12; it should be reflected as 0.08.

Page 21 (Chapter 1) was replaced to correct the last three sentences of the first full paragraph. (October 13, 2015)

Page 15 (Chapter 1) was replaced to amend the fifth sentence of the final bullet in the first column; the final clause was changed from with significant negative spillovers onto growth in large parts of the region given the size and interconnectedness of the Brazilian economy to read instead with negative spillovers on other parts of the region, especially Brazil’s trading partners in Mercosur.
