The South Asian Yearbook of Trade and Development is an annual series of publication launched by the Centre for Trade and Development (Centad) New Delhi, India in 2005, with the primary objective of articulating debates on development impacts of trade through rigorous policy research and analysis. The Yearbook is envisaged as a comprehensive collection of research papers, which attempt to reflect the South Asian perspectives at the multilateral and regional trade negotiations and provides policy suggestions for the trade negotiators and policy makers of the region.
The South Asian region is becoming increasingly prominent as an economic power house on the world stage particularly as India's economic prowess expands at a breath-taking pace....The value of this yearbook is that it examines the challenges the region is facing in this process of growth, and provides policy makers, business and civil society groups an opportunity to pause and reflect on how the potential in the region can be shaped for the betterment of all... commendable that Centas's tackled these challenges from a development perspective in this yearbook.
