The presence of a trade agreement facilitates trade, but the absence of an agreement does not necessarily restrict trade. This is evident as informal routes like the UAE continue to exist to reroute India’s trade with Pakistan, despite the suspension of formal trade. The report ‘Dubai Angled Triangle’ focuses on the changing trends of informal trade between India and Pakistan after 2012, and dives deep into the role of the UAE based on primary research as well as using quantitative analysis. The report is authored by Nikita Singla (Associate Director, BRIEF) and Priya Arora (Senior Research Associate, BRIEF).
