South Asia

Published every Monday
distill example

South Asia is home to nearly two billion people, accounting for around 25% of the global population. The region is also among the fastest-growing ones, despite the significant challenges that it faces. This newsletter covers all facets of the region, right from the potential to leverage its human resources to the political climate.

One good thing for Deepnews is that the region is home to a large number of smaller outlets that cover local stories well. This newsletter aims to include not only these local sources, but also pieces from the established powerhouses that have vast influence over what residents read.

One of the ongoing issues is South Asia’s response to the pandemic, which has involved some struggles. Deepnews.ai will cover all things coronavirus in the area, as this crisis could have a major impact on the region’s growth ambitions.
