about this item

Taking two approaches, the book analyzes South Asian-Southeast Asian economic cooperation and integration first looking at cross-regional functional issues, bottlenecks and opportunities at the national level. The book aims to identify the main constraints to South Asian-Southeast Asian economic integration, to provide specific policies which governments--together with the private sector and other development partners--should follow to overcome obstacles, and to estimate the potential benefits and costs of those policies. It surveys key issues, existing bottlenecks and what can be done to resolve them, considers the stakes involved, and offers policy recommendations for governments. It presents promising new approaches for regional institutions, identifies priority projects and uses a compatible general equilibrium model to estimate overall benefits and impacts of various scenarios of greater cross-regional integration.
