A seminar on “What will South Asia look like in 2025?” was held at the IPS Auditorium in Colombo recently. The seminar was based on the book “Reshaping Tomorrow: Is South Asia Ready for the Big Leap?”Edited by Ejaz Ghani.
Addressing the Seminar Mr .Gahani said that there are two contrasting opinions on this matter, the optimistic view and the pessimistic view. The optimistic outlook is that India will achieve double-digit growth rates.
South Asia too will experience strong growth primarily due to the growth of India. The pessimistic outlook is that growth will be derailed by the many transformational challenges the region faces.
