In recent times, South Asia has attracted global attention for demonstrating rapid growth. What is not so well known is that this is the least integrated region in the world. South Asia has opened its door to the rest of the world but remains closed to its neighbours. Poor market integration, weak connectivity, and a history of conflict have created ‘two South Asias’. The first is dynamic, urbanized, globally integrated, and rapidly growing; the second is rural, impoverished, and lagging. Accelerating Growth and Job Creation in South Asia provides fresh perspectives on these issues by exploring the link between regional integration, economic growth, and job creation. The outcome of a high-level dialogue between the private sector, political leadership, policymakers, and academics in South Asia, this volume is an important contribution to the debates in this area. The volume is organized along three themes—overview of South Asia’s growth opportunities and challenges; sources of growth and policies for the future; and the significance of regional cooperation in promoting growth. The essays combine quantitative data with analytical rigour to provide innovative suggestions in terms of policies and institutions that can propel South Asia towards higher growth, while promoting inclusiveness.
