If population growth is an indicator of strong GDP in the future, then southeastern Asian countries such as Malaysia and the Philippines are primed for economic expansion. According to the revised 2012 UN population study, population growth is occurring faster in the Philippines than any other southeastern Asian country. The report indicates in the next decade, labor participation will grow in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore.

For example, according to the report, “By 2300, life expectancy in the rest of Eastern Asia will be four years longer than in China, while life expectancy in China is at least
three years longer than in the other Asian
regions.” Real GDP is correlated with population growth.
