The US on Thursday placed India on its ‘Priority Watch List’, alleging lack of “sufficient measurable improvements” to its Intellectual Property (IP) framework on long-standing and new challenges, which, it said, has negatively affected American right holders over the past year.

The office of the US Trade Representative identified 11 countries, including India, in its ‘Priority Watch List’. China, Indonesia, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela are among the others.

The USTR has also placed 25 countries, including Pakistan, Turkey and the UAE, on the watchlist.
