The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) nations joining together to create South Asian Union. Many benefits for it’s people from trade and travel opportunities.

More benefits:

1. Visa free travel.
2. No duty on goods & services.
3. Common currency.
4. No curb on Investments.

‘Advantages: massively decrease arms spending both ways, invest the saved defense spending into infrastructure, economy, agriculture, and broadening social and economic institutions to create a larger middle class and promote industry and the information-age services sector.’

If we look at Sylhet, Bangladesh region with it’s close proximity to North East (Seven Sisters) region of India, development opportunities.are huge!
