Chapter Summary

The economic and technological transformation of India and China provides a topic of interest for researchers across the world. The pace of change over recent years in both countries has been remarkable, propelling once little known company names such as China's Huawei Corporation and India's Wipro Technologies on to the global stage as multi-billion dollar businesses and creating heartlands of innovation in formally rustic outskirts of the cities of Suzhou and Shenzhen in mainland China and Bangalore, Pune and Hyderabad on the Indian subcontinent. This chapter reviews the academic debates concerning connections between IP and technological development and relates these to arguments about the nature and future of intellectual property regimes and the role of state and non-state actors in regime formation. The linkages between the international intellectual property regime, national technological development and investment driven growth within developing countries also generated considerable debate and controversy over recent years.

Keywords: China; India; intellectual property regimes; national technological development
