To talk more about the economic relationship between China and India, we’ve got Mr. Ding Yifan, researcher of the Development Research Center of the State Council. Welcome Mr Ding.

Q1: It seems like there’s a ton of potential for China-India bilateral trade very simple facts, we’re talking about the two most populous nations on Earth, we’re talking about a boom in middle class consumers in the decades to come and China and India are neighbors where is trade underserved between China and India and how do we boost that potential?

Q2: total trade between China and India came in at just 73 billion US dollars last year, far behind China’s other major trade partners in the region, but going forward, simply based on demographics, the potential consumerism demand in the country and how large India is compared to China’s other trade partners in the region, do you foresee a future where China-India trade surpasses that of Japan and South Korea.
