Regional Economic Outlook, April 2016, Asia and Pacific : Building on Asia's Strengths during Turbulent Times
On page 53, the last paragraph erroneously states “0.1 percentage point decline in consumption growth”; the sentence should state “0.1 percentage point increase in consumption growth”. Therefore the correct sentence is as below:
"In contrast, what happened in China is a 0.1 percentage point increase in consumption growth and a 5.5 percentage point decline in investment growth."
On page 54, the first paragraph erroneously states “consumption growth increased by 3.1 percentage points [–0.1 – (–3) = 3.1]”; this should have been included as “3.1 percentage points [0.1 – (–3) = 3.1]”. Therefore the correct sentence is as below:
"We can then assume the following rebalancing effect in China between the 2001–07 and 2011–15 periods: consumption growth increased by 3.1 percentage points [0.1 – (–3) = 3.1], and investment growth declined by 2.5 percentage points [–5.5 – (–3) = –2.5]."
