India Institute is organizing the first India Property Rights Conference on the theme ‘Property Rights for Ease of Doing Business’ on July 13, 2015 at the India Habitat Centre in Delhi.
The Union government’s focus on improving India’s Ease of Doing Business ranking offers a good opportunity to bring together the best minds of the country to advocate creative measures to strengthen rule of law and protect physical and intellectual property rights, which are three common parameters measured by all the major economic freedom indices.
