Dr. Razeen Sally on what South Asia can learn from East Asia

Dr. Razeen Sally is an expert on global trade issues and on the rise of Asia in the world economy.

In a piece published today in the online publication East Asia Forum, Dr. Razeen writes, “South Asia is in much better shape than it was a generation ago. The sub-continent has enjoyed catch-up growth, narrowing the yawning economic gap with the West. Yet the ‘Asian century’ is overwhelmingly East Asian, not South Asian: the development gap between East and South Asia is huge and widening.” Thus, how can South Asia catch up with their eastbound neighbours? Dr. Razeen tackles this quandary with a “shopping list” of remedies, finishing with a rousing call for India “to take the lead — and to lead by example”.
