Abstract

South Asia remains home to the world's largest number of poor. There are also substantial disparities between countries. This, combined with the ongoing recession in economies the world over, raises new concerns about the challenges that confront governments and analysts today. This book analyses the types of policies and institutions that could propel South Asia towards higher growth, while also promoting growth inclusiveness to address the inequality concerns. The analysis of the book is an outcome of a high-level dialogue on growth between the private sector, political leadership, policymakers, and academics in South Asia. The volume is organized along three themes-overview of South Asia's growth opportunities and challenges; sources of growth and policies; and the role of regional cooperation in promoting growth.
