Live online chat with World Bank economists on April 16

"There are signs that the strongest economy in the region, China, is beginning to turn the corner. ... A return to stronger economic expansion in China next year should help support growth among the countries of the East Asia and Pacific region."

Despite an expected surge in joblessness and shrinking GDP growth forecasts in many of the region's countries, the World Bank's latest East Asia and Pacific Update, released last week, highlights China as a hope for leading the way to recovery. The biannual assessment of the region's economic health predicts economic activity in China to bottom out by midyear.

This week on Thursday, you'll have a chance to ask questions to the World Bank economists in a live online chat. Lead Economist and author of the report Ivailo Izvorski and Vikram Nehru, Chief Economist for the East Asia and Pacific region, will answer questions on April 16 at 9:30 a.m. U.S. Eastern time (13:30 GMT). Be sure to submit your questions in advance for a better chance of having them answered. Check it out here.
