Socio – Economic Data
The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) is a Regional Cooperation among the eight nations of South Asia, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, which came into force on December 8, 1985 with an objective to eradicate wide spread poverty, promote regional cooperation, enhance connectivity and to increase intra-regional trade among the South Asian States.

One of the key objectives of SCCI is to collate, collect, and disseminate statistical data and conduct joint research and development among the SAARC countries. To achieve this objective, the socio-economic data serves as a valuable resource, providing accurate and reliable data on various socio-economic indicators. The data includes information on population, education, health, employment, macroeconomic performance, trade, foreign direct investment, tourism, agriculture, manufacturing, and other sectors crucial for the region development.

The socio economic data provided valuable data and information for those interested in the social and economic progress of South Asian region. The data is gathered and compiled from reputable sources such as the World Bank, ITC/Trade Map, UN COMTRADE, and World Integrated Trade Solutions, IMF, and Ministry of Commerce, Export/Investment Promotion Bureau, Chamber of Commerce and Central Bank of South Asian countries.
