The largest and most diverse continent in the world, Asia brings together 48 countries in a territory covering more than 44 million km2. Asia is the largest continent in size and population in the world. With 44,614,000 km2 and about 4.5 billion people, the region is divided into 48 countries and five regions: Central Asia, East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia and West Asia.

Located to the east of the Eurasian continental mass, where Europe is also located, Asia is bounded by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the east and the Indian Ocean to the south and the Red Sea to the southwest. Among all continents, it has the highest average altitude - the highest peak on Earth, Mount Everest (8,848 meters above sea level), and the lowest place, the Dead Sea (430 meters below sea level). sea), are located in the region.

The Asian continent is very diverse, both in terms of population and economic development, and in relation to its climate and vegetation. In the region, for example, it is possible to find tropical forests, pastures, deserts and even tundras. While there are countries with some of the highest Human Development Indexes (HDI), such as Singapore (9th) and Japan (19th), Asia is also home to less developed countries, such as Pakistan (150th) and Yemen (178th).
