CPD meet to talk growth policies in South Asia
Politicians, economists and civil society members from South Asia will meet in Dhaka tomorrow with the aim of revisiting the region's policies for a sustainable growth in the face of worries over prolonged recession in the West.
Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) organises the two-day gathering -- Fourth South Asia Economic Summit -- dubbed as the biggest assembly of experts on South Asia after the Saarc summit.
"South Asia is a flourishing economic region in the world and showed resilience in various crises. The aim of the meet is to look into how regional cooperation can help South Asia achieve inclusive growth by tackling crisis together," said CPD Distinguished Fellow Debapriya Bhattacharya at press briefing at its office in the city yesterday.
Some 83 foreign delegates, including 62 from Saarc states, will attend the meet at Ruposhi Bangla Hotel. Its outcome will be placed at the next month's 17th Saarc Summit in the Maldives.
