The 26 ACCELERATING GROWTH AND JOB CREATION IN SOUTH ASIA evidence also suggests that lagging regions are growing slower than leading regions. What can South Asia do to achieve high growth and reduce poverty given this spatial asymmetry between income per capita and poverty incidence? Migration Labour mobility is the natural mechanism for promoting faster and inclusive growth regionally and globally. In the case of South Asia, remittances are almost twice as large as private debt and portfolio equity, three times as large as foreign direct investment, and seven times as large as official development assistance.

The deficit is particularly large when South Asian countries are compared to their competitor countries in East Asia, such as Malaysia (where the incidence is twice as high) and China (where the incidence is three times higher). A low incidence of training has negative implications for the industrial competitiveness of countries in the region. Policymakers are increasingly aware that an educated and trained workforce is critical for technological change and creating a knowledge economy. But countries are yet to put education and training at the top of their priorities.

A key challenge for the leadership is to develop a vision and a road map that will help the lagging regions in South Asia to accelerate growth and for the more developed regions to sustain high growth and achieve middle income status. 7 Leadership, persistence, and determination matter. A government that acts in the interest of all its citizens rather than for itself or subgroups is important. A lesson emerging from East Asia is that good policies, when spearheaded by a leadership which is pro-growth and proprivate sector, can propel a country towards achieving double digit growth rates.
