Jobs in South Asia

South Asia is a vast swath of land extending from Afghanistan to the west and Bhutan in the east and from the Himalayas to the Maldives. Covering 8 countries, it has a population of over one and a half billion inhabitants.

Over half a billion of them are poor and half a billion are young people. To take care of the growing needs of this population, South Asia has to create 1.2 million jobs every month for the next 20 years. How?

Georges Collinet spoke to Kalpana Kochhar and Reema Nayer, both economists for South Asia, about the findings of the book "More and Better Jobs in South Asia”.
