Description

This Trade Perception Survey was undertaken to understand how stakeholders engaged in India-Pakistan trade perceived impediments faced by them in realising the trade potential between the two countries. Based on an analysis of information collected in the survey on six indicators - awareness of trade policy, ease of meeting standards, market access, business facilitation, customs and documentation, and infrastructure at ports - the study recommends policy options that the Indian and Pakistani governments could consider to reduce impediments. As India and Pakistan are in the midst of a trade normalisation process, the recommendations made would help the two governments address the impediments highlighted in the study. This study would be useful for policymakers, industry representatives, think tanks, and students of economics and international relations.
