The International Monetary Fund has lowered its growth forecast for the Asia Pacific region this year to 4.2% -- 0.7 percentage point lower than it expected in April, and well below the region’s 6.5% growth in 2021.

The fund also cut its 2023 forecast for the area to 4.6%, down by 0.5 percentage point.

Much of the downgrade reflects the ongoing spillover from shocks including Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, China’s economic slowdown and rising global interest rates.
