RTTNews - Thursday, in its July issue of the Asia Economic Monitor, the Asia Development Bank noted that the East Asian Economies had already entered the transistion from recession to recovery, although the economic growth was continuing to slow this year.

Emerging East Asia could see a V-shaped recovery, with growth dipping sharply in 2009 before regaining last year's pace in 2010, Jong-Wha Lee, ADB Chief Economist and Head of the Office of Regional Economic Integration said.

However, the report cautioned saying that given the tentative nature of the expected recovery, it was critical for authorities to continue to follow measures which would support domestic demand and growth. Monetary and fiscal policies in the region need to remain accommodative until the recovery gains substantial traction, the ADB said.

Emerging East Asia should reinforce cooperation in enhancing financial stability by accelerating regional initiatives, and actively participate in designing the new global financial architecture, it added.

Moreover, the ADB pointed out that deep recessions in the U.S,Europe and Japan would continue to hurt emerging Easing Asian economies, particularly the smaller one that were highly reliant on exports. However, larger economies like China, that had implemented major fiscal packages were begining to see some results from the stimulus packages.
