Addressing Cross-cutting Impediments
This chapter evaluates whether there are potential gains from intra-regional engagements in the education sector in South Asia, focusing primarily on higher education. It compares South Asia with other developing countries to illustrate the challenges facing this region in education services. It also provides an overview of trends in educational attainment indicators over time to show the extent to which progress has been made in the region. It then considers policy trends and regulations in education to determine the extent to which education services have been opened up to private sector participation and foreign investment and the regulatory frameworks existing in the sector. The chapter also assesses the status of intra-regional trade, investment, and cooperation initiatives in education services, along with the education sector's overall preparedness for liberalization.
