Contributions by: Chen Mirong

China and India are two ancient civilizations and two ancient neighbors who are both poised to play a pivotal role in the future of the global economy. Written from a Chinese perspective by experts at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, this book analyzes and assesses the relationship between these two countries. At its core, the book examines the regional impact and international significance of the simultaneous rise of China and India. Sino-Indian relations are seen as a process which has been subject to fluctuation and change. Relations between the two countries are examined through the BRICS mechanism (BRICS = the countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China) and the move towards greater cooperation. However, China and India are also competitors and this book offers a comparative analysis of their economic strengths. The economic stages of development and industrialization of these two countries are also compared. As well as cooperation, there is friction between these two giants, and this is highlighted in the collisions that have taken place on free trade associations. The book examines both the certainties and uncertainties of China and India relations and looks at political as well as economic implications for the future of this relationship and the likely impact it will have on the region and beyond.
