Trade in the Asian and Pacific region has recovered strongly since the first quarter of 2010. While world trade is still struggling towards a full recovery, monthly trade values for Asia and the Pacific have already returned to the pre-crisis level. Merchandise trade in the region grew by more than 30% in 2010, compared with 21% growth in world merchandise trade.
