As you may be aware that CII has partnered with the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKY), Asia Competitiveness Institute, National University of Singapore (NUS) on Ease of Doing Business in India.
CII has signed an MoU with the National University of Singapore (NUS) to cooperate in preparing a “Masterplan on Ease of Doing Business in India: Vision 2020”, with the objective to collaborate in conducting joint research and capacity building on issues related to Ease of Doing Business in India and across States. Subsequent to the bilateral MoU, NUS and CII have initiated the process of signing individual tripartite MoUs with States for the purpose of creating state-wise Masterplan for Ease of Doing Business and to come out with comprehensive state-level action plan.
