New Delhi Roundtable on "Innovate in India"


On September 24, 2015, NBR and the Institute of Economic Growth (IEG) co-hosted a public event in New Delhi, India, featuring senior policymakers and innovation specialists, as part of NBR’s initiative on India’s IP and Innovation Policies. This event also served as the New Delhi launch of NBR’s Special Report, “Innovate in India: Global Perspectives on the Continuing Evolution of India’s IP Policy.”

India has emerged as a major economic power and is actively looking to strengthen its role in and ties to the global economy while stimulating domestic growth. As India works to further develop its economy, issues concerning intellectual property rights and innovation policies have increasingly appeared in national and international discussions. Major economies across the Asia-Pacific have large stakes in India’s development and in the ways in which Indian policy affects innovation and the competitive landscape in global markets. How and to what extent India, the United States, and other leading economies are able to work together to address these issues will have critical implications for sustaining healthy environments for investment, market innovation, economic growth, and closer overall strategic ties.
