As India and the rest of developing Asia work to maintain high levels of economic growth, intellectual property and innovation policies have become increasingly salient in national and international discussions. The European Union, the United States, and other major economies have large stakes both in supporting the growth of developing countries and in shaping how policy affects innovation and the competitive landscape in global markets. How and to what extent these actors can collaborate to address these issues will be critical for sustaining healthy investment environments and promoting strategic relationships.
