The Institute of South Asian Studies (ISAS), National University of Singapore will host the 3rd South Asian Diaspora Convention (SADC) in Singapore from 18-19 July 2016. The convention is expected to bring together more than 1,000 distinguished guests and more than 50 of the region’s leading policymakers, business leaders, academics and civil society leaders to be part of these groundbreaking South Asian conversations. Singapore’s and Sri Lanka’s Prime Ministers, including Chief Ministers from India and the region will interact and deliberate on some of the most compelling South Asian investment opportunities.
On the back of robust growth led by India, SADC 2016 is a one-of-a-kind timely event that aims to address critical questions relating to the geopolitics and geoeconomics opportunities and challenges affecting South Asia today which is at the cusp of taking off.
Despite volatility in global markets, South Asia continues to be on a growth trajectory and is the fastest-growing region in the world, with economic growth forecasted by the World Bank to gradually accelerate from 7.1 percent in 2016 to 7.3 percent in 2017.
This year’s convention will focus on five key areas of the economic and political needs of South Asia: Geopolitics, Education, Start-ups and Entrepreneurship, Law and Business, and Diaspora and Citizenship.
