South Asia
In the world has many region , we discuss such kind of region geo-strategically ,geo-politically and geo-economically which is very important for its Geographical location, two economic giant ( member country India and neighbor country China),Energy based Natural resources,huge men power, two nuclear countries(India and Pakistan) etc* this region is South Asia *.South Asia is Surrounded by Middle east, Easternasia ,Centralasia Southeasternasia,Indian Ocean and the Himalayas ,is composed 8 countries (Bangladesh , India, Nepal , Bhutan , Pakistan, Sri Lanka , Maldives and Afghanistan) . Bangladesh
