India is Nepal's largest trade partner and source of foreign investment; India is also the only transit providing country for Nepal. Nepal shares a border of about 1850 kilometres with five Indian States - Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal and Sikkim. An estimated 6 million Nepalese live and work in India. As close neighbours, India and Nepal share a unique relationship of friendship and cooperation characterized by open borders and deep-rooted people-to- people contacts of kinship and culture. The relation between trade, infrastructure and economic development within countries is a much debated issue. Most trade economists have a view of a world in which countries freely exchange goods, factors of production and technology. Free trade in goods leads to equalization of factor prices across countries.
