Discussion: What defines China-India ties?

During his trip to China, Indian President Pranab Mukherjee’s addressed the China-India Business Forum in Guangzhou to pitch business opportunities for Chinese investors in India. He then traveled to Beijing to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping and deliver a speech at Peking University. In his speech, he highlighted his expectations for the Sino-India relationship and tackled the sensitive border issues that have caused tensions in the past. Some have noted that this trip seems to be dominated by economic themes. Does this indicate that economic and trade ties have come to define or overshadow other links between China and India? Will India’s advantages in the fields of technology and innovation help it avoid the economic pitfalls currently occurring in China? Join CCTVNEWS for a discussion on the evolution of China-India ties with Ms. Li Li, Associate Research Fellow at the Institute of South and South-East Asian Studies of the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations; in New Delhi, Mr. Madhav Nalapat, UNESCO Peace Chair and Director of the Geopolitics and International Relations Department at Manipal University; and in Washington DC, Ms. Lisa Curtis, Senior Research Fellow on South Asia at the Heritage Foundation, formerly Senior Advisor at the State Department, and a diplomat at the US Embassy in India.
