    Abstract

    Transport cost, a significant determinant of competitiveness. Due lack of regional connectivity in South Asia and poor trade facilitation at border crossing, logistic costs are 13-14% of the value compared to 8% in USA. Transport connectivities between South Asian countries continue to remain fragmented, despite existence of basic infrastructures Indian wagons come up to the border, and BR Locos pull them inside. No inter-country truck movement. Goods are transshipped at the border.
