2015 started on a fast and furious pace. The sharp fall in oil prices and central bank surprises dominated headlines. Growth uncertainty rose. So how is Asia shaping up this year? During this presentation, we will explore Asia’s macroeconomic environment in 2015, as well as, highlight key market themes to be mindful of this year.

In addition to the 2015 outlook, we will take a longer-term look at ASEAN. 5, 2, 690, 9, 70, 1/3, 46, 7, 26, 55. No, these are not the winning numbers for the next Powerball, unfortunately!
