    LaSalle Mid-Year ISA update: Asia Pacific is Likely to Lead Economic Recovery

    SINGAPORE (August 17, 2020) — Economies around the world have been damaged more severely than any peacetime event since World War II.

However, the combination of high levels of trust in Asia Pacific governments, an earlier start to the downturn and recovery, unprecedented monetary and fiscal stimulus packages, and the region’s important role in global supply chains, especially China lends resilience to the region. These macro factors, combined with high-frequency indicators, shed light upon our outlook for Asia Pacific economies and real estate markets, despite the uncertain duration of the pandemic, according to LaSalle’s mid-year Investment Strategy Annual (ISA) report.
