Identify a state or sister state to develop international linkages. The criterion for selection should be based on either opportunistic selection or research based approach to satisfy economic or social objectives of the State.
Step – 2
Identify the relevant sectors of interest within the target state from the total of 17 Industrial Sectors (as discussed above). The criterion for identification should be the state needs or opportunities that may arise as a result of cooperation.
Step – 3
Identify the nodal infrastructure within the target state and seek arrangements to connect it with local nodes. In case there is more than one nodal connection available value core nodes more than the periphery. This arrangement is based on the assumption that core nodes are less costly and yield greater economic benefits.
Step – 4

Step – 6
Identify transnational relations which are productive and have been very active throughout the term. Mature such interactions with formal contracts, making state agreements which are long lasting. This will thus further reduce the transaction costs.
Step – 7
Develop a general framework to evaluate the agreements and relations:
a. Logic Model
i. Establish short term, medium term and long term goals,
ii. Identify activities to be performed segregated evenly over the span of time
iii. Identify indicators that will be used for evaluation purposes
b. For trade specific projects use economic input output model to quantify the benefits and costs. Few available IO models in the market are REDYN, IMPLAN and RIMS-
For social programs use cost and benefits analysis, or lesson drawings from the past.
