The Asia-Pacific, like other regions across the world, has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic and looks ahead to recovering from the effects of this global crisis. Experts acknowledge that recovery outlook will vary by country depending on infection rates and containment measures, roll-out of effective vaccination programs, policy responses, reliance on contact-intensive activities, and external demand. However, 2020 was also a great year for investors, with equity market benchmarks in the US hitting new highs, supported by strong earnings growth among tech stocks and pharmaceutical companies.
In 2021, with a new administration in place in the United States, what will the investment outlook for the Asia-Pacific region look like? Where will the recovery be and what will be the engine of growth needed?
