South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation Operational Plan 2016-2025 Update

This report reflects the changes in the South Asia Sub-regional Economic Cooperation (SASEC) Program’s operational plan for the period 2016–2025, in particular on priority projects resulting from a rigorous vetting process. This involves defining SASEC transport and energy networks and identifying priority projects based on preparedness and their roles in filling network gaps. The result is a more reasonable estimate of funding needs to help meet the SASEC Program’s goals of multimodal connectivity, energy market development, and increased intraregional and interregional trade.
