Multi Regional Trade

Dear Dr. Antti,

I need some further clarification on the application side of the technique you suggested.
The GAMS manual provides two options for putting tax i.e. either on commodity or on the process.
- Tax on Commodity- COM_TAXPRD (Tax on the production of a commodity within a region for a particular timeslice)
- Tax on Process- FLO_TAX (Tax on a process flow).
However, in my case the Bi-trade process has two regions Bangladesh and Nepal and the tax parameter will only be applicable to one of these two regions therefore increasing the cost of import. But, I need to model this tax in such a way that the revenue earned from the tax is added to India region objective function, so as to reduce the cost of Indian power system. Please suggest how to do this?

(the GAMS manual says Taxes and subsidies on investments are treated exactly as investment costs in the objective function)
