The South Asian Bureau of Economic Research (SABER) builds on the success of the East Asian Bureau of Economic Research (EABER) in creating a forum for high-quality economic research focusing on issues facing the economies of South Asia and economic interaction between South and East Asia. It comprises representatives from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia. The rapid development of the South Asian economies, the growth of regional and intra-regional trade, financial and other economic interaction, and South Asia's increasing role in the global economy all underline the need for access to a vastly increased range of quality economic analysis on South Asia. SABER, like EABER, is a portal for research on South Asian Economics and houses a collection of research papers from all its member institutes available in the categories at the top of this page. For more information on SABER funding, support and purpose, see About SABER.

Despite major domestic and external challenges, Indonesia is expected to grow at around 5 per cent again this year — much like last year — and only slightly below the official estimate of 5.3 per cent but much lower than the 7 per cent the new government had targeted. Compared to continued downward global growth, including that of China and its ASEAN neighbours, Indonesia’s stable growth looks quite respectable.
