ECFR and Asia Centre publish latest issue of China Analysis
The authors of the latest issue of China Analysis, “China and India: rivals always, partners sometimes”, argue that Western concerns over “Chindia” – the emergence of a Sino-Indian economic power bloc or strategic alliance – may be unwarranted.
China Analysis, a joint ECFR and Asia Centre publication, introduces European audiences to the ongoing debates in China, drawing on published sources and internal strategic thinking.
Bilateral trade between India and China, despite a strong recent rise, remains comparatively modest. Strategic rivalry, conflicting interests, and disputes over borders and the treatment of the Dalai Lama continue to shape the relationship towards one of quiet friction.
The European Council on Foreign Relations does not take collective positions. ECFR publications only represent the views of its individual authors.
