Being largest economy in South Asia, our growth can serve as lifting tide for our neighbours: EAM

Jaishankar said, “Primary responsibility is on India because we’re the largest economy (in South Asia), in that sense our growth can serve as a lifting tide for all our neighbours, if that happens, I don’t think we should over-negotiate that.

Need to incentivise the cooperation in neighbourhood.
