New ways of looking into the future of a diverse Asia

Takers of the national college entrance exam pass through the gate of a middle school in Wuhan, in central China's Hubei Province, on June 7, 2015.

Several socio-economic hurdles -- labor, health and education among them -- sit between Asia and its future development. These issues will have to be deeply analyzed. But therein lies another problem: Levels of economic development, social structures and cultures differ greatly from country to country and region to region. Collecting good data is a difficult task.

     Earlier this month, about 25 top scholars took up these challenges during an international conference in Tokyo. Accounts of their work will make their way into the January 2017 edition of the Asian Economic Policy Review.
