Posted on: Fri 21 May 2021

Australia, as well as global superpowers such as the US and China are projecting economic growth following the severe difficulties of the past year. However, many countries including some of our closest neighbours are still struggling to see some sort of economic boost due to an array of factors.

Visiting Fellow from Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs at Australian National University, Amrita Malhi, joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Paul Davies to speak about the economic effects of growing poverty in developing countries.
