Abstract: 
South Asia could unleash its full potentials, provided, it improves the infrastructure facilities, which are at present not sufficient to meet the growing demand of the region. The renewed and shared agenda of the South Asian regional cooperation should aim to reduce both intra- and inter- regional trade facilitation gaps as well as to expand the connectivity. South Asia has to enact its own connectivity and trade facilitation arrangement to take forward the agenda of South Asian integration. The analysis of this paper indicates that South Asia may gain enormously if they reduce the conflicts across the border and secure improvement in both hard and soft infrastructure. Facilitating business beyond border means an enhanced trade facilitation and connectivity in the region. South Asia connectivity needs a new vision to compete globally. This paper examines the determinants of connectivity in the region with a view to making appropriate policy choices.
