Experimentation and Innovation: Don't Forget India

In thinking about pollution and international trade, China receives most of the headlines but India should not be forgotten.  This long piece  highlights the synergies between urban growth and green innovation in India's Bangalore.  I would like to write a trade paper on global supply chains in developing green products such as wind turbines and the role that LDC cities play in this process.  As of now, I've written a "macro paper" on this general subject, but I haven't been able to identify data that connects individual exporting firms in India to individual importing firms in the United States to examine the dynamics of such supply chains.
