South Asia, with its large population, has emerged as an important player in the WTO and the current negotiations under the Doha Round. Nevertheless, the countries in the region face a formidable challenge in analyzing and synthesizing proposals and submissions made by other WTO members.

Previous studies have looked at the subject from a WTO issues-based perspective but not necessarily from the country capacity perspective. In this book the contributors examine the position of each South Asian country in the multilateral trading system as defined by the WTO and highlight various concerns they have on key WTO issues in agriculture, industry, services, and development. The possibility of South Asian countries formulating a common position in the WTO negotiations is also explored in detail.

This book is useful for academics, policy makers, civil society activists, undergraduate students of Development Economics and anyone with an interest in the WTO vis-a-vis South Asia.
