SOUTH ASIA… A UNIQUE REGION OF THE WORLD
It is a very different and sensitive region of the world. In fact, other than South Asia, there is no region in the world where two rival nuclear powers are situated as neighboring countries. It has KASHMIR….which is an international flashpoint nowadays. More than one third of the world’s poor population lives in this region. That is the reason all eight countries of South Asia desperately need a strong mutual information network to know each other better.
SAARC… HIGHWAY TO PROSPERITY
The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) was established when its charter was formally adopted on December 8, 1985 by the Heads of State or Government of Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
SAARC provides a platform for the people of South Asia to work together in a spirit of friendship, trust and understanding. It aims to accelerate the process of economic and social development in member states.
