Summary:
The health, economic and political impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has been significant across South-East Asia, but the virus has not spread as rapidly here as in other parts of the world. There is much to learn from the response to date of countries in the subregion as governments have acted swiftly and despite limited fiscal space to contain the pandemic and avoid its worst effects. This policy brief examines how the eleven countries of South-East Asia are coping with the immediate impacts of COVID-19, focusing on the subregion's socio-economic response and providing four sets of recommendations for a recovery that leads to a more sustainable, resilient and inclusive future.
