South Asia s trade almost doubled in the past decade, but the share of trade in GDP is still smaller (47 percent) than in East Asia (55 percent), and South Asia s economic competitiveness continues to lag that of other regions. Part of the problem is the region s container ports. As a result of inefficiencies, the average cost of exporting or importing a container in the region is more than twice what it is in East Asia. Better port logistics could help increase trade, diversify exports, attract more foreign direct investment, and spur economic growth.

Argentina’s cities are geographically and economically diverse, and its largest urban area – Metropolitan Buenos Aires – is one of Latin America’s urban giants.

Inadequate electricity services pose a major impediment to reducing extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity in Sub-Saharan Africa. Simply put, Africa does not have enough power.

Nigeria s cities already home to 85 million people are expected to double that number in 30 years. Even in the best of times, this rate of growth would challenge the provision of sufficient land, finance, infrastructure, and other services. Yet the country is also grappling with the dramatic plunge in world oil prices. Bustling urban centers, when well served, can boost economic growth and slash poverty. To seize that opportunity, Nigeria needs to implement significant and urgent reforms.

Despite impressive economic growth and increasing prosperity, cities in Mexico do not seem to have fully captured the benefits of urban agglomeration, in part because of rapid and uncoordinated urban growth. Recent expansion of many Mexican cities has been distant, disconnected, and dispersed, driven mainly by large single-use housing developments on the outskirts of cities.
