Abstract

A Trade Perception Survey was undertaken to understand how stakeholders engaged in India-Pakistan trade perceived impediments faced by them in realizing 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 normalization process, the recommendations made would help the two governments address the impediments highlighted in the study.
