Twenty years from now, Asia’s economy as a whole will, on these trends, be larger than that of the G-7 [Group of Seven leading economies] and will be half the size of the G-20 [Group of Twenty advanced and emerging market economies], These are incredible trends taking place.” - Anoop Singh, Chief- IMF Asia.
