    Afghanistan The political and security risk outlook is bleak following the assassination of President Karzai's brother.
    Australia Despite the buoyant external environment for Australia's resource exports, there is caution among consumers.
    Bangladesh Economic growth prospects improve amid rising government spending on power and transport infrastructure.

    Korea (South) Despite slowing, the economy is returning to a more normal growth trajectory.
