SDPI to hold seminar Regional Connectivity and Economic Growth in South Asia tomorrow

The
Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) will hold a seminar under
titled  Regional Connectivity and Economic Growth in South Asia 
tomorrow Monday at SDPI Seminar Hall.

The
speakers will speak on the occasion included Mr Muhammad Naveed Iftikhar,
Governance Specialist, Economic Reforms Unit (ERU), Ministry of Financ, Dr
Vaqar Ahmed, Deputy Executive Director, SDPI.

Connecting
countries via mutual trade is part of future economic paradigm known as 
Single Economic Unit , a vision widely supported by international financial
institutions and the G-20 countries. Regionally connectivity in South Asian
poses tremendous potential that would not only encourage development but can
also turn South Asia into world s  engine of growth .

Connecting
regional  energy resources  to  consumption centres  is
nowhere else as important as in the South Asian Region, which is a home to
about one third of the world s population. Tied with the lace of energy transportation
lines, South Asia can emerge thriving and peaceful.

Trade
and energy go hand-in-hand, and South Asia, which is portrayed as 
shining  on the heels of its young population, can use geography to its
advantage. The first and foremost condition for this magic to happen is peace
with  Simple Harmonic Equilibrium,  which means that all major
disputes are maintainable without any external or internal pressure or support
of people on either side
