Abdul Abiad is Director of the Macroeconomic Research Division at the Asian Development Bank in Manila, where he oversees the ADB’s flagship publication, the Asian Development Outlook. His work at the ADB has focused on macroeconomic research and surveillance and on issues relating to infrastructure. From 2000 to 2015, he was with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington DC, where he worked on the IMF’s flagship publication, the World Economic Outlook. His research there focused on financial sector development and international financial integration, fiscal policy, exchange rates and trade, economic resilience, and the macroeconomic effects of infrastructure investment.

The Asian Development Bank’s flagship publication, the Asian Development Outlook (ADO), provides a comprehensive analysis of macroeconomic issues in developing Asia, including growth projections by country. It presents an analysis of 45 countries, including the sub-regions of Central Asia, East Asia, South Asia, South East Asia and the Pacific. This year’s Outlook focuses specifically on disaster resilience. In his speech, Mr Abdul Abiad will be presenting the ADO 2019 by addressing four key issues that will have a significant impact on the further development of the Asian region, being: the economic prospects for developing Asia and the Pacific, trade policy uncertainty in Asia, rising US monetary policy uncertainty and its implications for Asian exchange rate volatility, and lastly the Asian exchange rate depreciations and how they have affected domestic financing conditions.
