ASIA BOND MONITOR

March 2014

Emerging East Asia’s local currency bond markets have regained their bounce as bond yields have fallen for most markets in recent months. However, bond markets could still be jolted by the ongoing tapering in US quantitative easing, the slowdown in economic growth in the People’s Republic of China, and moves by the European Central Bank to counter threat of deflation, says the latest quarterly Asia Bond Monitor from the Asian Development Bank.
