Economic relations between Latin America and Asia have strengthened significantly over the past 15 years. In particular, gross trade flows between the two regions have grown tenfold since 2000.

Singapore’s economy continues to perform well, and is expected to grow at about 3 percent in 2014–15, and enjoy full employment and low inflation, according to the IMF’s latest economic assessment of the city-state.  The report, which comes on the eve of the fiftieth anniversary of Singapore’s founding, says that the uncertain global recovery, and the turning of Singapore’s credit and housing cycles are contributing to a moderation of consumption growth, and capital accumulation. #singapore

Abenomics has lifted #Japan out of the doldrums, according to the IMF’s latest assessment of the Asian economy. But, policies need to be reinforced to end the lingering deflationary mindset, raise growth, restore fiscal sustainability, and maintain financial stability without undue reliance on yen depreciation.  The IMF report found that Abenomics’ three-pronged strategy of aggressive monetary easing, flexible fiscal policy, and structural reforms constituted a clear break from previous incremental efforts. But, despite initial positive results, the pace of real GDP growth has remained at about 1 percent—similar to the post-bubble period—and deflation risks remain.

Energy subsidies are projected at US$5.3 trillion in 2015, or 6.5 percent of global GDP, according to a recent IMF study. Most of this arises from countries setting energy taxes below levels that fully reflect the environmental damage associated with energy consumption. The country-level estimates underlying these global figures are now publicly available. Energy subsidies are dramatically higher than previously thought. Estimates for global energy subsidies in 2011 have been revised to US$4.2 trillion, more than double the US$2.0 trillion previously reported in a 2013 IMF book, Energy Subsidy Reform: Lessons and Implications.
