RIS is a premier policy research organisation working on international economic issues. Over the years RIS has gained prominence for its contribution to research and policy in areas like multilateral trading system, regional trading arrangements, comprehensive economic cooperation architecture, and South-South Cooperation. Trade, Technology and Investment issues define the core expertise of the institution leading to several research studies and deliberations for large number of trading arrangements at the bilateral and multilateral level in which India has participated. In doing so, RIS has also been instrumental in advising the government on a regular basis across departments.
