Presentation of the “Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2010”

On May 6, 2010, a presentation for mass media representatives on the Launch of Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2010, was conducted at the Center for Economic Research (CER) . Informational support was provided by the UN ESCAP, UNIC country offices in Russia and Uzbekistan. The presentation was made by the Leading research officer of the CER Umida Islamova.

More than 30 participants, including Media representatives from press, radio and information agencies, and representatives from UNIC and the UNDP country office, as well as researchers and experts participated at the Launch.

The Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2010, an annual publication of ESCAP provides the governments of the Asia-Pacific region - representing 62 per cent of the world’s population - a roadmap towards a more inclusive and sustainable development path.

The Survey promotes a number of regional policy recommendations for inclusive and sustainable growth, such as strengthening social protection and enhancing financial inclusion.

The Survey recommends that Asia and the Pacific should increase efforts to create a more integrated and sustained regional market benefiting both national economies and a larger consumer class. Until now the region has been better connected through trade patterns with Europe and North America than it has been with itself. The Survey identifies a number of priorities - enhancing regional economic integration and integrated trade and transport policies, development of a regional financial architecture - that can lay the foundations for a more inclusive, interconnected and sustainable path of development for the region.

The Survey - launched on May 6, in over 22 cities across the region, including Tashkent, and in New York and Geneva - is available online at: http://www.unescap.org/survey2010.
