Cross-border Trade and Economic Development in the Border States of India

This study attempts to evaluate how the border states in India are actively engaging in cross-border trade, examines the role of central and state governments in strengthening the infrastructure developmental activities and identifies the challenges and opportunities for it. The study found that border states that are actively engaging in cross-border trade have received better funding from the centre and have also recorded a higher growth rate of state gross domestic products compared to other border states. Although the cross-border trade with countries such as Bangladesh, Nepal, and Bhutan is flourishing, there is a huge scope for expanding it with Myanmar and Pakistan.
