Asian 2010 GDP forecasts – upgraded again - Part 2: Would Asian retailers’ cash registers be sizzling now?
Story 1 - One Viewpoint

   Part 1 looked at how the sooner-than-expected economic rebound late last
   year had dramatically boosted sentiments across Asian economies, which
   were confident enough to begin projecting significantly robust GDP growth
   rates for 2010. How bullish were the numbers and how sustainable were
   they? Part 2 revisits these questions and looks at how the upbeat outlook
   continues to unfurl.A key outcome has been rising consumer confidence.
   But the outlook is not entirely without its downsides. And there are
   uncertainties from the sovereign debt crisis within the Eurozone now. Asian
   retailers can expect their cash registers to ring with more gusto but they
   certainly cannot take it for granted.
