Background:
South Asia Economic Summit (SAES) is the premier regional platform for debate and analysis of politico-socio-economic issues and problems facing South Asia. SAES is the first of its kind in the region that builds on and (based on robust evidence) contributes to South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Summits. Since 2008, SAES has been bringing together stakeholders each year to review and reflect current issues and problems of the South Asian countries. The Summit develops new insights and generates ideas on policy measures for consideration of the regionís decision-makers. SAES is led by a group of five think-tanks across South Asia that hosts the summit on rotational basis in one of the SAARC countries every year. The think-tanks are: Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) in Bangladesh, and Information Systems for Developing Countries (RIS) in India, Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) in Pakistan, South Asia Watch on Trade, Economics and Environment (SAWTEE) in Nepal and Institute for Policy Studies of Sri Lanka (IPS) in Sri Lanka.
