    We anticipate credit conditions in Asia-Pacific going into 2020 to be mixed. Lower official interest rates provide some relief but we are likely to see some decline in credit quality and rising defaults, particularly among nonfinancial corporates.

    We expect political uncertainty will result in another year of weak growth for Latin America in 2020, albeit it should improve moderately compared to this year. We don't predict subdued investment levels across the region to improve significantly in light of continued uncertainty about policies, slower global growth, and in some cases, social unrest.
