A Survey on Regional Investments and Value chains in South Asia

The project on “Regional Investments and Value chains in South Asia” was launched in June 2016. The project aims to understand the constraints of, and solutions to, intra-regional FDI and participation in global/regional value chains in the South Asian region through a survey of actual and potential investors. The motivation for this survey comes from the Regional Pioneers Project which compiles detailed case studies of pioneering South Asian firms that have successfully invested in other South Asian countries. This one aims to complement that compilation. The project is supported by the World Bank.
