1. Impact of the global crisis on Asia

2. Rebalancing growth in Asia

3. How are enterprises being affected?

4. Policy issues

  • Government responses
  • ADB’s response

impact on asia
Impact on Asia

The more globalized, the harder hit

Growth stagnates as export demand plunges; affects industrial production

Capital flows become volatile

Stock prices plummet

Currencies tumble against the US dollar

Sovereign bond spreads widen, indicating heightened credit risk

GDP growth to slow further in 2009…

2. Rebalancing growth in Asia

Asia relies heavily on exports…

:

thus the need to rebalance growth
…thus the need to rebalance growth

Strengthen domestic demand

Improve investment climate to attract private capital

Promote small- and medium-sized enterprises and service industries

Adopt financial development and exchange rate polices that promote better and more efficient resource allocation

Enhance regional integration and cooperation

3 how are enterprises being affected
3. How are enterprises being affected?
  • Mainly through the adverse impact on exports
  • Worst hit are those in industries showing steep declines in exports, and their suppliers
impact by industry
Impact by Industry

A= road vehicles

B= metal manufactures and general industrial non-electrical machinery and equipment

C= electrical machinery and apparatus

D= basic chemicals, rubber and plastic products

E= telecom, sound recording & reproducing apparatus

F= other exporting manufacturing industries

A= non-electrical machinery

B= wearing apparel including footwear

C= electrical machinery

D= textiles

E= professional and scientific equipment

F= other exporting non-oil manufacturing industries

estimating an exports vulnerability index for manufacturing
Estimating an Exports Vulnerability Index* for Manufacturing

* The index measures the share of workers or firms that may be directly affected by the sharp decline in exports.

backward linkages and multipliers
Backward linkages and multipliers
  • Estimates computed based on the direct impact on manufacturing sectors exporting
  • These require inputs from other sectors— crisis impact thus broader given backward linkages
  • Example: in India, a US$1 drop in wearing apparel exports implies a 43.6 cent drop in intermediate inputs; and another 26.5 cent drop in demand for services (1st order impact)
  • Multiplier effect will be larger if iterated dynamic channels and linkages are taken into account
what will happen to smes
What will happen to SMEs?
  • Importance of SMEs in employment varies across economies
  • Clearly seen from manufacturing data
might seem less affected
Might seem less affected…
  • Evidence from World Bank Enterprise Survey data from 15 manufacturing industries
  • Small enterprises are
    • Less export oriented
    • Less likely to use imported inputs
    • More likely to sell output to other small firms and directly to consumers
  • All more pronounced for South Asia
but smes are still hit
…but SMEs are still hit
  • First, averages mask heterogeneity
  • Second, policies must encourage SMEs linked to export markets and large enterprises—they are precisely the ones that are “engines of growth,” adopt new and more productive technologies, and generate good jobs
finally finance is fast becoming a constraint
Finally, finance is fast becoming a constraint
  • Bond spreads are increasing – implying difficulties for SMEs in accessing finance
4 steps taken to deal with the crisis
4. Steps taken to deal with the crisis
  • Safeguard banking and financial systems
  • Increase liquidity and ease credit and monetary policy
  • Boost fiscal spending
  • Specific support to SMEs
    • Credit guarantees
    • On-the-job training
    • Tax allowances

Will increase lending by more than $10 billion in 2009–2010
