GENEVA — Growth in Asia-Pacific developing economies is forecast to increase to 6 percent in 2013, slightly up from 5.6 percent last year, with steady demand growth in the U.S. and a mild rebound in the performance of major emerging economies spurring the expansion, a United Nations report said Wednesday.
The region’s biggest emerging country, China, is expected to grow 8 percent, up from 7.8 percent in 2012, and India to expand 6.4 percent, up from 5 percent, the study by the Bangkok-based U.N. Economic & Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific said.
