Tishwash: this was in Iraq’s news

 The World Bank warns East Asian countries of the “worst economic outlook” in half a century

 The World Bank lowered its growth forecasts for China next year, warning that developing economies in East Asia “are expected to grow at one of the lowest rates in 5 decades,” according to a report published by the British newspaper “Financial Times.”

The bank’s bleaker forecast for 2024 underscores growing concern about China’s economic slowdown and how it will spread to Asia, with policymakers in Beijing already setting one of the lowest growth targets in decades for 2023, at about 5 percent.

The World Bank, citing a series of weak indicators for the world’s second-largest economy, said it “expects China’s economic output to grow by 4.4 percent in 2024, down from 4.8 percent in April.”

It also lowered its 2024 forecast for GDP growth for developing economies in East Asia and the Pacific.

Forecasts show that the region, one of the world’s main growth engines, is preparing for its slowest pace of growth since the late 1960s, excluding extraordinary events such as the coronavirus pandemic and the global oil shock of the 1970s.

The World Bank’s chief economist for East Asia and the Pacific, Aditya Mattoo, said, “Experts expected that China’s recovery following strict controls over the Corona epidemic would be more sustainable.”

The bank noted that Chinese retail sales have declined to below pre-pandemic levels, coinciding with stagnant house prices, increasing household debt, and delayed private sector investment.

“The growth slowdown will continue unless Asian governments, including China, embark on deeper reforms in the services sector,” Mattu warned.

According to the international expert, the shift from growth based on real estate and investment was a challenge for many developing Asian economies.

He explained: “In a region that has already flourished through trade and investment in manufacturing, the next big key to growth will come from reforming the service sectors, by taking advantage of the digital revolution.”

Goods exports fell by more than 20 percent in Indonesia and Malaysia, and more than 10 percent in China and Vietnam, compared to the second quarter of 2022, raising household, corporate and government debt, thus reducing growth prospects further.

The deteriorating expectations also reflect that a large part of the region – and not just China – has begun to be affected by the new American industrial and trade policies under the “Inflation Reduction” Act and the “Electronic Chips and Science Act”, which provide subsidies of about $53 billion, in order to increase American semiconductor production. Made, addressing supply chain vulnerabilities by producing more goods in the United States, promoting domestic scientific research, and strengthening the country’s economic and national security.

For years, Southeast Asia has benefited from trade tensions between the United States and China and tariffs imposed by Washington on Beijing, which has led to increased demand for imports towards other countries in the region, especially Vietnam.

However, Washington’s adoption of the “Reducing Inflation” Law and the “Chips” Law in 2022 had a negative impact on Southeast Asian countries, as their exports of the affected products to the United States declined.

“This entire region, which has benefited… from trade tensions between the United States and China… is now suffering from trade being diverted away from it,” Mattu said.

Electronics exports from China and Southeast Asian countries, including Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand, declined after US President Joe Biden’s protectionist policies took effect, according to the World Bank.   link
