During the 1990s, Emerging Europe and Central Asia (ECA) chose a model of rapid financial development emphasizing bank credit expansion often funded by foreign capital. Although boosting financial inclusion of firms and households, the model was accompanied by lower efficiency and increased financial vulnerability.

South Asia s trade almost doubled in the past decade, but the share of trade in GDP is still smaller (47 percent) than in East Asia (55 percent), and South Asia s economic competitiveness continues to lag that of other regions.

Better port logistics could help increase trade, diversify exports, attract more foreign direct investment, and spur economic growth.

The number of people in South Asia's cities rose by 130 million between 2000 and 2011–more than the entire population of Japan.

But the region's cities have struggled to cope with the pressure of population growth on land, housing, infrastructure, basic services, and the environment. As a result, urbanization in South Asia remains underleveraged in its ability to deliver widespread improvements in both prosperity and livability.
