The Manila-based bank slightly raised its forecast for China this year and the next, aided by the impact of government reforms and better prospects for key trading partners.
The bank lifted its 2013 forecast for China to 7.7%, from 7.6% in October. It now sees 2014 growth at 7.5% rather than 7.4%.
However, the ADB lowered estimates for Southeast Asia this year and in 2014, in the wake of a strong typhoon in the Philippines and political uncertainties in Thailand.
The bank kept its growth forecast for developing Asia at 6% this year and 6.2% next year.
