They give high marks on the outcomes, saying that continuing reform have made it possible for the economies to achieve strong growth and to be more diversified and resilient. Introduction of new measures have worked to avoid other financial crises and to make the region's financial system stable. The economies, however, face various challenges including infrastructure developments, increase of productivity and further reforms to keep the growth and to overcome the middle-income trap, the economists add.
