However, eight years after its inception, the Association still has not been able to make any meaningful progress in this direction due to political sensitivities among the members. To assist this process, feasibility and potential benefits are at issue. In which specific areas would regional economic cooperation be both feasible and mutually beneficial- and what are the constraints which need to be resolved to facilitate such cooperation? In this volume, the contributors take up these fundamental issues in the context of specific sub-sectors of industry and energy where regional economic cooperation may be desirable and feasible. They address various constraints to regional cooperation in the context of economic, technological and historical political processes, as well as potential advantages from this cooperation to both individual countries and the region as a whole.
