Abstract

One of the most significant recent developments in world trade has been the entry of China into the World Trade Organization (WTO). This paper examines the implications of China`s WTO accession for India`s trade using both econometrics and computable general equilibrium (CGE) models. The paper analyzes how India stands to lose or gain from China`s WTO entry in terms of both the direct and competitive channels.

Keywords: China, India, Trade, World Trade Organization (WTO), CGE models
