South East Asia: Growth is gearing up but not yet at full steam

Tighter mobility restrictions around the turn of the year will weigh on growth in Q1 for most SEA economies while inflation is also trending higher. We expect the region’s recovery to gather pace in Q2, led by strong exports and electronics demand amid a global rebound. But a return to pre-pandemic levels remains some time off for some and the recovery will continue to depend on a country’s health success and policy support. New outbreaks and a slower vaccination progress remain key risks to the outlook.
