Title: India and China : Towards a Competitive-Cooperative Relationship?
Date of publication: August 2010
Description/subject: "One of the defining moments of the 21st century is the rise of China and the emergence of India, which, according to many analysts will possibly lead to a tectonic shift in the economic and strategic balance of power in the world from America and Europe to Asia. Some analysts estimate that if the two countries continue to grow at the rates they have grown in the past decade (India at 6-8 per cent and China at 10-12 per cent), China’s economy would be eight times bigger than India's in 30 years. China’s rise is faster, more spectacular, and managed deftly with a well-thought-out road map. It is not just the statistics that testifies to China’s rise, but Beijing has matched her achievements in economic development by positioning herself both economically and strategically in the world stage...The ever-expanding trade between the two countries automatically gives them a huge stake in keeping co-operation alive, despite occasional hiccups.

Title: India-China Relations Impressions from a Dialogue with Beijing

Title: China at 60 - Sino-Indian Tensions
Date of publication: 26 October 2009
Description/subject: "...India and China have been indifferent neighbors in history with the high Himalayas intervening between them. The Indic and Sinic cultures are competitive, as clearly visible in Southeast Asia. Both countries offer competing models of development to achieve economic growth and social justice, distinguishing between the democratic and totalitarian paths. And, finally, history informs us hat large civilizational nations cannot be cordial neighbors, a modicum of normality is all that is possible in their relationship..."
