Call to strengthen SAARC communications links

On the occasion of the 15th SAARC Summit in Sri Lanka from the Commonwealth Business Council and SAARC Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Monday urged Heads of Government to strengthen communication links in the region.

The SAARC region lacks adequate communication infrastructure and some countries follow a restrictive policy when it comes to developing regional communication links, a press release said.

It said that the telecommunications links should be uninterrupted and penetrable in the region with deregulation and foreign investment encouraged.

It also urged the governments to finalise an agreement in the services sector.

Extending the South Asia Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA) to include services would broaden its scope and impact and boost competitiveness in key emerging sectors such as banking, communications and aviation, it said.

"South Asia's growth remains resilient amidst a mood of lowering expectations in almost all developed economies.
