Britain have signed a treaty with India over the protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights.
The move is an attempt to stimulate investment in a country which often leaves inventors and companies fearful that their works will be copied due to the relaxed climate surrounding intellectual property rights.
The Science Minister Lord Sainsbury met with Kamal Nath the Indian Minister of Commerce to discuss the deal.
The new deal will focus on training for Patent Office staff in India, teaching Intellectual Property in university and law school and generally raising awareness of Intellectual Property.
It is hoped that when these movements begin to develop a stronger intellectual property culture in India, more large companies will invest in India.
