South Asia's Integration with the Rest of Asia: a survey

Author

  • Dilip K. Das

Abstract

While there can be unforeseen difficulties, developments of the recent past point to the gradual integration of South Asia with the dynamic economies of East and Southeast Asia. Two modes of integration have been taking place: the expansion of existing subregional free trade agreements and ASEAN's initiatives as a bridge between the regional groups of Asian economies. While the present endeavours of these economies are resulting in a shallow form of integration-which may not suddenly turn towards deep integration-onward movement along the same path is certainly possible.
