  6. Logistics Performance Index: World Bank The Logistics Performance Index is an interactive benchmarking tool created to help countries identify the challenges and opportunities they face in their performance on trade logistics and what they can do to improve their performance. The LPI 2016 allows for comparisons across 160 countries The LPl is based on a worldwide survey of operators on the ground (global freight forwarders and express carriers),providing feedback on the logistics "friendliness" of the countries in which they operate and those with which they trade. India's ranking has jumped from 54 in 2014 to 35 in 2016. This is a biennial Report. Next report will come in 2018. They combine in-depth knowledge of the countries in which they operate with informed qualitative assessments of other countries where they trade and experience of global logistics environment. Feedback from operators is supplemented with quantitative data on the performance of key components of the logistics chain in the Country of work Germany topped the list.

  7. Better performance in logistics will not only boost Programmes, such as Make in India, by enabling India to become part of the global supply chain, it can also help increase trade. In 2015-16, India's foreign trade shrank by around 15%. * The Logistics Performance Index analyses countries across six components: efficiency of customs and border management clearance, quality of trade and transport infrastructure, ease of arranging competitively priced shipments, competence and quality of logistics services, ability to track and trace consignments, and the frequency with which shipments reach consignees within scheduled or expected delivery times. It is computed from the survey responses of about 1,051 logistics industry professionals Programmes, such as Make in India, and improvements in infrastructure have helped India improve its logistical performance.

  8. Human Development Index (HDI): United Nation Development Programme The HDI was created to emphasize that people and their capabilities should be the ultimate criteria for assessing the development of a country,not economic growth alone.The HDI can also be used to question national policy choices, asking how two countries with the same level of GNI per capita can end up with different human developmentoutcomes.These contrasts can stimulate debate about government policy priorities. The Human Development Index (HDI) is a summary measure of average achievement in key dimensions of human developmenta long and healthy life, being knowledgeable and have a decent standard of living.The HDI is the geometric mean of normalized indices for each of the three dimensions The health dimension is assessed by life expectancy at birth, the education dimension is measured by mean of years of schooling for adults aged 25 years and more and expected years of schooling for children of school entering age. The standard of living dimension is measured by gross national income per capita.The HDI uses the logarithm of income, to reflect the diminishing importance of income with increasing GNI.The scores for the three HDI dimension indices are then aggregated into a composite index using geometric mean.

  9. The annual Human Development Report, commissioned by UNDP, focuses the global debate on key development issues, providing new measurement tools, innovative analysis and often controversial policy proposals. The global Report's analytical framework and inclusive approach carry over into regional, national and local Human Development Reports, also supported by UNDP UNDP focuses on helping countries build and share solutions in three main areas: v Sustainable development v Democratic governance and peacebuilding Climate and disaster resilience In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable.

  15. The report said its key findings included that a number of countries introduced new enforcement mechanisms and specialized IP courts to better combat counterfeiting and piracy. Besides, free trade agreements signed in 2016 helped raise the bar for protection of life sciences IP copyrighted content online, and enforcement against IP theft, it said. . "Various governments undertook a review of their IP laws, recognizing that IP laws must keep pace with the emerging challenges IP owners face. Economies leveraged international partnerships through Patent Prosecution Highways," it said, adding that despite these positive developments, some countries took steps to restrict IP rights in 2016.Also, countries introduced new requirements for local production, procurement, and manufacturing . The report further said, " A number of governments attempted to limit the scope of patentability via both judicial decisions and legislation. Both individual governments and representatives of the multilateral institutions encouraged public officials to utilize compulsory licenses and expand exceptions and limitations in the name of increasing access."
