Almost like an audience-customized appendix to the World Bank's East Asia and Pacific Update November 2009, the live online chat held last Thursday by the regional Chief Economist, Vikram Nehru, and the lead author of the report, Ivailo Izvorski, answered a good number of questions in detail.

From diversifying Cambodia's economy to the right moment to suspend governments' stimulus packages, Vikram and Ivailo also touched on the effect of a weak US dollar in East Asian economies, on the challenges to generate domestic growth in export-dependent economies, and on the risks of inflation and asset price bubbles in the region, among others.
