TOKYO -- Asian economists have revised upward their growth forecasts for the economies of Singapore and Indonesia, thanks to quicker rollouts of coronavirus vaccines, a recent survey shows.

The Japan Center for Economic Research and Nikkei conducted a quarterly survey from Mar. 5 to 26, collecting a total of 40 answers from economists and analysts in India and the five biggest members of the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations -- Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.
