An in-depth analysis of how India, China and other South Asian countries can cooperate on key challenges affecting their bilateral relationships
This book focuses on identifying the extant barriers and impending opportunities for effective coordination of transport infrastructure and enhancement of trade activities along the border regions of South Asian countries. It asserts that with pertinent policy guidelines and timely initiatives from the participating countries, unprecedented opportunities can be capitalized upon for consolidated economic growth of the region. It exposes how untapped resources, bureaucratic and political inertia and a lack of collective endeavour remain major impediments to bilateral and multilateral cooperation which, if surmounted, could pave the way for successful regional initiatives.
It will be indispensable to researchers and scholars of international relations, South Asia studies, international trade, comparative politics, political economy, and to the informed general reader.
