Ganguly: India-Pakistan Trade Relations

Interviewee: Sumit Ganguly, Professor, Political Science, Indiana University
Interviewer: Jayshree Bajoria
January 15, 2008

Sumit Ganguly, a professor of political science at Indiana University, says even though discussions on trade are continuing between India and Pakistan, the “very disturbed political climate in Pakistan will make Indian businessmen hesitate about making any long term deals, so there will be a bit of a hiatus at the moment.” But Ganguly believes the prospects of increasing trade between the two countries are considerable. India and Pakistan recently announced that they aim to increase the bilateral trade between them to $10 billion by 2010.
