South Asia Economic Conclave- ‘Achieving Inclusive Growth through Deeper Economic Integration’, September 28- 30, 2015 || Delhi


The Asia and ASEAN region contribute nearly 53% to the world trade, while South Asia contributes approximately 5% only. There is tremendous potential to increase trade within the South Asian region which would lead to the development and prosperity of the whole region. Regional integration has vast potential for accelerating economic growth and reducing high levels of poverty in South Asia. The region’s immense potential to reduce endemic poverty can be realized by boosting intra-regional trade, services and cross-border investments. This effort underpins the vision of the SAEC.

The Department of Commerce, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in partnership with Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ACCI), Bhutan Chamber of Commerce & Industry (BCCI), Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI), India-Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IBCCI), Pakistan Business Council (PBC), The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce and support from the World Bank Group is organizing the first ever South Asia Economic Conclave (SAEC) to
