Promoting production and domestic markets helps to reverse the economic downturn

Mr. Nishimura, Director of ERIA, urged East Asian countries and ASEAN members to find out effective solutions to minimize impacts of the crisis, so as to speed up the economic recovery.

Many scholars agreed that the optimal solution for Asian economies is to promote their integration into the region and the world.

It is also necessary to fully exploit domestic markets and the East Asia-ASEAN region.

Takeshi Hachimura, an expert from the Japan International Cooperation Agency, emphasized the need to stabilize the financial sector, especially liquidity which is very important to financial and monetary organizations as it helps build up market confidence.

He also underlined the need to keep a close watch on risk management.    

According to Dr. Zhang Yunling, director of the international research department under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Việt Nam, Singapore and Taiwan (China) would continue to achieve economic growth thanks to their stimulus packages and investment support policies.
