Regional Integration in South Asia: Trends, Challenges and Prospects presents an objective assessment of trade and economic co-operation among South Asian nations and highlights policy issues to foster regional integration. The analyses presented in this volume go beyond the usual discussions on trade-in-goods to provide insightful perspectives on potential new areas of co-operation, emerging challenges, and country-specific views on regional and bilateral trade co-operation issues.

Written by influential analysts and researchers, the volume’s 24 chapters include perspectives from Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, and examinations of new areas of co-operation such as investment, regional supply chains, energy and cross-border transport networks.

South Asian Trade: What it Means to Maldives

South Asia, counted among the fastest-growing regions in the world, has the most geographically diverse composition in terms of the size, populations and resources of its countries. It is anticipated that the fast growth in South Asia will benefit from young demographics, new waves of globalisation, increased labour mobility and the rise of the middle class in the coming years (Ghani 2011).
