‘China & India: Hidden Dragon, Crouching Tiger’

China and India require serious attention.

Without this attention, governments, businesses and, indeed, individuals may find themselves at a great disadvantage sooner rather than later.

Chindia is a virtual land of China and India. This land will remain virtual – at least for the foreseeable future. Although Chindia may never become a real entity, China and India individually is having and will continue to have a dramatic impact on the world stage in the foreseeable future.

There is not only huge interest in China and India, but there is an over abundance of information. You can hardly open a newspaper without at least one article on China or India. However, as we know, having lots of information available does not necessarily make one any wiser.

This short talk tries to distil salient facts and figures and structure them under: politics, economics, social and cultural factors and technology in order to prepare the listener to be alert to the threats and opportunities that China and India present.
