Question

You work at a pharmaceutical company that is considering entering India, Chile, Canada, China and Turkey. Conduct the appropriate level of research in a trade barriers database to identify information on India’s current requirements (tariffs, duties, non-tariff barriers, investment-related barriers, and intellectual property rights).

Do you see any trends between CPI scores and the level of economic and social development of a country?
