Nobel Laureate Dr. Muhammad Yunus in Hiren Mukharjee Memorial Speech in the Indian Parliament expressed his vison for a South Asian Union by the year 2030. He drew the picture of a common flag alongside the national flag of the member countries, a common currency and a large area of common domestic and foriegn policies for the union. The idea is the reflection of the political and economic success of the European countries after forming the EU.
His vision of South Asian Union is his new idea after projection his idea of social business on which he is now working in Bangladesh on a number of projects with some major companies of the world like Danone, VVeolia, Intel, Adidas, BASF and Otto.
At this moment the idea of South Asia Union is a difficult proposition as there are multiple conflicting issues exist among the South Asain countries and there are also distrust and religious and political differences among the nations.
Still the idea of Dr. Yunus will be pondered upon in future by both public and politicians alike of this area.
