India And China, Redux

Filed under: Basic Questions,Business,China — Prashant @ 5:23 pm

India and China, combined have 2.3 billion people. And it sometimes feel as if there’s almost as many write-ups comparing these two countries. The latest to join the fray is Deloitte and Touche’s The Reality Beyond The Hype.

Hope you all are enjoying the summer. We apologize for the sporadic posts and for fillers recently. Our day jobs and/ or personal affairs have tied us up.

  2. Thanks for posting on this. I read Delloite’s report and thought it was quite good. Very optimistic as well. I would summarize it as follows:

    Both [China and India] will grow rapidly, taking a much larger share of global GDP. Yet for the forseeable future, it is likely that China will continue to grow more rapidly than India. In both countries, the domestic market will become increasingly attractive to global companies.

    2. The division of labor between the two of them will become blurred as both countries excel in services and manufacturing.

    3. Both countries, while remaining relatively poor, will experience rapid growth of the middle class, creating vast new opportunities for Western companies to sell in those markets.

  4. India and China are too different to be put together in superficial terms (nurenpigu). I think they will go saperate ways as their econmies mature.
