This study on “Emerging Trends in India-Pakistan Trade” would not have been completed without the support of many. First and foremost the support from United States Institute of Peace (USIP) is gratefully acknowledged. The interactions held with several stakeholders during field visits to Amritsar and Mumbai provided in-depth understanding of issues pertaining to the subject and formed the basis of the paper. The preliminary findings of
the study were presented during a conference in Kathmandu held on November 17, 2017 jointly organized with Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), Islamabad -our research partner in Pakistan. The feedback and comments received by participants during the conference were extremely useful and helped finalize the study. We would like to express our gratitude to the GST council for sharing their views on our analysis of imposition of GST on imports from Pakistan. We would also like to thank Ms. Manali Sharma and Ms. Riya Roy for their research assistance in the study. We are indebted to our reviewers for their valuable comments, which enhanced the quality of the paper. The administrative team of ICRIER deserves a special mention. In particular, we would like to thank Rajinder Singh Rawat for helping us organize the conference in Kathmandu.
