In 2022, we have seen further moves by central banks around the world to tighten monetary policy. Major central banks have signalled a tightening of monetary policy sooner and more quickly than investors expected with potential disruptions to financial markets and developing countries. On top of this, the war in Ukraine and the lockdowns in China due to Omicron cases have cast more uncertainties on the economic and inflation outlook for policymakers. While Asia may be better positioned to face tightening global financial conditions and weather the related uncertainties than in the past with wide-ranging policy tools and improved policy frameworks, the challenges remain daunting. What are the risks on the horizon to Asia's economies and what is the range of pre-emptive actions central banks can take?
In the longer run, Asia is on a decades-long journey to invest in a greener future and Asia's multilateral institutions will support the growing infrastructure needs in the region. The needs are huge, with estimates that green investments will need to at least double from current levels over the next decade. How are Asia's central banks playing a defining role in spurring green initiatives, and what will this do to strengthen the investment landscape?
