Politicians, educationists, economists, social activists of the South Asian region under a common platform ‘Imagine a New South Asia’ (INSA) urged the SAARC leaders to make a common currency and visa procedure for the people of this region.
They underscored the need for making a collective vision and mission to promote more policy convergence on key issues, more regional cooperation initiative at the government as well as the civil society level. It seeks to promote the vision of a peaceful, prosperous, democratic, free and fair South Asia. They urged all to come forward to decrease inequality, social and political conflicts among the leaders of the South Asian region.
This was urged at a roundtable on ‘Towards a New South Asia: Working Out Strategies’ jointly organised by Bangladesh Unnayan Parishad (BUP), Indian Social Institute (ISI), Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) of Pakistan and NGO Federation of Nepal in partnership with Action Aid International held at BRAC Centre Inn in the city on Saturday.
