27 January 2014 Last updated at 02:38 GMT

The president of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) Takehiko Nakao says he expects Asia to experience "robust" economic growth this year.

The bank has predicted that the region will grow on average by 6% in 2014.

He also said the region's countries were in a better position to cope with any repercussions from the US Federal Reserve's tapering of its stimulus programme.

Mr Nakao spoke to our chief business correspondent Linda Yueh in Davos.
