The Big Story

Your predictions for Asia in 2022

From soccer to the supply chain, 2022 brings plenty of unknowns. We asked you to forecast what's in store.

Vaccines, variants, lockdowns -- much of the news this year has been dominated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In Asia, however, the coronavirus has at times been overshadowed by political turmoil in areas such as Afghanistan and Myanmar, supply chain disruptions, energy shocks, and the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Nikkei Asia team has worked hard to cover the highs and lows of 2021 and make sure that you, our valued readers, were well-informed.

As this year draws to a close, we decided to turn the tables and ask you to predict what's to come in 2022. In early December, we sent out a survey, asking our readers to forecast what next year will bring for Asian politics, business, sports and more. 800 of you responded. In this final Big Story of 2021, we summarize your predictions alongside expert commentary from Nikkei reporters and editors.
