Shanghai night view
Shanghai is one of the leading powers of China’s economic growth.

 

PricewaterhouseCoopers, a multinational professional services network, published a report predicting the most powerful economies in 2030. The report clearly highlights that the center of global trade is, and has been for a while, moving towards the East – and that by 2030, China will be the next global economic powerhouse. Only the United States can compete in the top five with China, India, Japan and Indonesia.

The paper lists 32 countries by their projected global gross domestic product by purchasing power parity. PPP is used when comparing countries by equalizing the purchasing power of two currencies, by taking into account the cost of living and inflation differences. All Asia Exchange destinations countries can be found on the list, as well! China, Japan and Indonesia make it to the top five, while South Korea is 14th, Thailand 22nd and Malaysia 25th.

 

According to PwC, China will overtake the United States as the number one economy in 2030. There is no surprise that Japan is number 4, considering its status as the world’s economic power. Indonesia also makes it to the top five, and this is a clear indication of the country’s huge potential also in economic terms. The report also predicts that by 2050 Indonesia will take the fourth place signifying that the growth of Indonesia’s economy is not going to stop anytime soon. One of the Four Tigers, South Korea, is at number 14. South Korea started its rapid industrialization after the Korean War and is now one of the most highly developed countries in Asia.

Despite many of the Asian countries being relatively newly developed, they are growing quickly and the growth is continuing at a steady pace. Asian countries represent the future, and millions of people every year travel there for work and school. Knowledge of Asia is a valuable asset in today’s job market since more and more companies are expanding to Asia. Asia Exchange students have also realized the potential and more than 4000 students have already taken the opportunity to study in Asia.
