Can India compete with China as an economic superpower?
Patrick Hayes, Henley Business School MBA candidate and Promotions Manager of the Battle of Ideas, introduced Can India compete with China as an economic superpower?
China’s growth and potential as a future superpower is currently dominating the headlines. However, with sustained annual economic growth of 8-9% and a growing population that has been estimated to overtake China’s by 2050, India is in many ways developing as spectacularly. In preparation for the session “China and India: Catching up with the West?”, part of the Battle for Prosperity strand at this year’s Battle of Ideas festival, this forum will examine the extent to which India can remain on its current growth path to become one of the leading economic superpowers of the 21st Century.
