Investor sentiment towards emerging East Asia's local currency bond markets has improved but there are persistent concerns about financial stability in the region, including ongoing trade conflicts, according to ADB's latest issue of the quarterly Asia Bond Monitor.

For Thailand, as of the end of 2018, had the largest bond market among Asean member economies with $385.0 billion in paper outstanding. This was 2.5 per cent higher than at the end of September and 10.3 per cent more than at the end of 2017 in local currency terms.
