Abstract

In 2010 Asia rebounded spectacularly from the 2008-09 global economic crisis, reinforcing its position as one of the world’s most economically dynamic regions. Nevertheless, for many countries in the region, infrastructure bottlenecks remain a major impediment to sustaining economic growth.
Power shortages impinge upon the development of manufacturing and urban clusters; inadequate roads, seaports and airports hamper the movement of goods and labour; and poor water and sanitation systems pose a serious health risk to the region’s poor.
As economic growth moderates in 2011, the sustainability of Asia’s recovery is in focus. Although economic stimulus packages have driven construction activity in countries such as China and Thailand, others have struggled to find funds for infrastructure building. In the region’s emerging economies, investment in infrastructure is essential for the development of the manufacturing and services sectors to enable countries to drive productivity and maintain long-term economic growth.
