Brasília, 11 April 2013 –  Amidst widening income inequalities and depleting natural resources, the Asia-Pacific region is facing subdued growth in 2013. The United Nations Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2013 analyses a wide range of areas including economic growth, trade, inflation, employment, and labour migrations. The 2013 Survey will be presented at the Seminar “Asia and Brazil: Perspectives for Inclusive Growth” jointly organized by the Brazilian Institute of Applied Economic Research (IPEA) and the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) on April 18th, 9h am in Brasilia.

The Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific, the oldest and most comprehensive annual review of economic and social development in the region, analyses the short and medium-term challenges for the region and the outlook for the year ahead. The special theme of 2013 argues for a shift in the macroeconomic policy paradigm to achieve more inclusive and sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific.
