South Asia is at the cusp of change. Aside from being blessed with abundant natural resources, it is one of the world's most densely-populated regions, being home to over 1.6 billion people. Most importantly, it had experienced rapid population growth and is now home to a talented young population. At the same time, South Asia's economy is booming. The South Asian countries share many similar characteristics, in their political, societal and cultural, DNAs'. One common feature is that these countries experienced a rapid expansion of their higher education sector in recent decades. This is not surprising, given the increasing quality, access and affordability of primary and secondary education. This is matched concurrently by the region's strong economic growth resulting in higher demand for skilled labor.
