Need to know how sustained infrastructure investments could boost Bangladesh’s economy? How the delay in implementing key reforms on the domestic front, a weak trade performance and the recent slowdown in rural wage growth pose risks to growth in India? Or how Pakistan could achieve sustained and inclusive growth through reforms in energy and taxation, and increasing investment?

There is a one-stop place to find out what the World Bank is doing in your country and what it thinks about economic prospects there.

Snap up these snapshots 

Country Snapshots for South Asia – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka -- are now up on our web sites. They can give you the latest economic forecasts, an overview of World Bank strategy, and a project-by-project accounting of where the World Bank is investing in each country.  

Publishing these Country Snapshots is part of the World Bank’s commitment to openness and accountability. These documents were handed to government ministers and delegates from South Asia at the recently concluded Annual Meetings in Lima, Peru of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund.

We are making this information public so that people in South Asia countries can see what their ministers see.
