MANILA - The Asian Development Bank (ADB) on Friday trimmed the region's growth forecasts for 2012 and 2013 amid "uncertainty" in Europe and the United States, and a poor Indian economy. 

The region of Developing Asia, which excludes Japan, was set for growth of 6.0% in 2012, and 6.6% in 2013, the bank's latest Asian Development Outlook Supplement said, 0.1 percentage point lower for each year than it predicted in October.
