The ADB's latest assessment of the economic outlook of developing economies in Asia
Shang-Jin Wei
Cheif Economist, Asian Development Bank (ADB)
Language: The speech and Q & A will be in English

 Asian economies continue to advance, although at an uneven rate. One reason for this is that their participation in so-called "value chains" of production throughout the region varies widely. This phenomenon is not always accorded the importance it deserves and Asian Development Bank chief economist Shang-Jin Wei will explain why, while also presenting the ADB's latest assessment of the economic outlook of major developing economies in Asia.He will review the causes and consequences of uneven participation by Asian economies in global value chains and how, for example, the gains from the iPhone 6 and iWatch are spreading across different countries of this region.

 As chief economist at the ADB, Wei (who succeeded former chief economist Changyong Rhee earlier this year) is chief spokesperson for the ADB on economic and development trends, and leads the Economics and Research Department, which publishes ADB's flagship knowledge products. A US national, he was born in China and has a long and distinguished career in academia and international finance and trade.
