Integration of South Asian Economies: An Exercise in Frustration?

14 Pages Posted: 3 Apr 2007

Abstract

This paper examines the factors underlying the slow progress towards economic integration between the countries of the South Asian region, and discusses the worth and likelihood of an effective agreement. It is argued that substantial integration will only take place after further economic growth leads to increased complementarity in their economic structures.
