How to use this dashboard?

  • Each country is highlighted as per the exposure level of its main markets for its most significant exports (>50% of export basket).
  • The different sectors are indicated by relevant icons.
  • Density colours show level of exposure by analysing the pandemic curve in the top three export destinations for the sector.
  • Click on a country to show main exports.
  • The time series on the left show how countries are evolving in terms of daily new COVID-19 cases and the time series on the right shows the rate of vaccinations.

What does this dashboard tell us?

  • The idea behind this dashboard is to provide a progressive Asia centric overview of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, to countries and to businesses, so they can better prepare for the short-term and long-term effects. The infographic displays the different exposures by country.
  • The analysis highlights that most countries in Asia have a diversified export basket and rely on a number of export markets, thus reducing the risk on exports. Certain countries in Asia are highly dependent on a single export commodity, such as mineral fuels, oils, or precious stones. Among these countries, the ones that are focused on only one or two affected regions are those facing the highest risks.
  • In response to the pandemic and related shocks, as of 13 March 2022, we observed that Laos is the country most exposed by COVID-19 due to the high number of COVID cases in Vietnam, one of its main export markets. Burma is moderately affected by the pandemic with COVID-19 cases increasing in Germany, one of its main markets while the number of cases is dropping in its other main markets.
  • Moreover it can be seen that Iran and Kyrgyzstan are not exposed by COVID-19 due to the  low number of cases in their major export markets.
