Home to Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, South Asia is one of the world’s most dynamic regions, with a population of 1.67 billion people and an average 7.1 percent growth rate.

Yet, South Asia remains one of the least integrated regions: Intra-regional trade accounts for only 5 percent of South Asia’s total trade; Intra-regional investment is smaller than 1 percent of overall investment.

A more integrated South Asia offers the potential to better connect people, increase trade, and boost prosperity for all.
 
What does One South Asia mean to you? What is your vision for One South Asia?
 
Does it mean:
  • Easier visa requirement to travel the region?  
  • More direct flights between South Asian countries?
  • A vast South Asian free trade area?
  • A connected energy grid across South Asia?
  • A yearly South Asian cultural festival
  • More educational exchange programs?
  • A common currency?
  • A daily regional newspaper?

Or something else?

Snap a picture, caption your vision of One South Asia, and send it to us.
