India’s relationship with its neighbor China has balanced between economic cooperation, economic competition, and border disputes. As India seeks to attract more markets, especially in the tech sector, their competition with China has become increasingly complex, especially in the context of both India and China’s relationships with the United States and Russia. As US and Chinese tech has begun to diverge, India plays an important role both as a consumer and as a producer, banning Chinese social media, apps and restricting Chinese investment in Indian tech sectors while also seeking to become tech innovators and developing US tech strategic agreements.
Dr. Tanvi Madan, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, will discuss the geopolitical, economic and technological relationships between India, China and the United States. Joining us right as India will be having their elections, she will give us a very current picture of Indian politics and the implications. She will also help us understand the ripple effects and other key players involved, including the influence on the Middle East, Indo-Pacific, Ukraine and Russia.
