Discussion: The discussion will focus on the contrasting paths that China and India have undertaken to develop their economies. The two large countries have sharply different political systems and demographics. Their progress has sometimes been compared with that of a hare (China) and a tortoise (India). Which is more durable? What obstacles do the two governments face to growth and economic stability?
