This years edition of the Survey covers present and future possible shocks and gives Governments remedies for recovery and long-term strategies. The oil price spiral, tsunami fallout, the ageing population and poverty reduction are some of the major subjects discussed. While growth is not expected to be as spectacular as 2004, the Survey predicts the region will continue to be the fastest-growing in the world.
