India and China after the Doklam Standoff November 16th Event

This summer, China’s attempt to extend a road through the Doklam plateau, a disputed area near the borders of China, India, and Bhutan, led to an eight-week-long standoff between two of the most powerful countries in Asia. Despite $70 billion trade ties, China and India continue to view each other as adversaries. Numerous incursions and military standoffs have occurred across their 2,500 mile-long shared border. The deepening India-U.S. relationship is a source of concern in Beijing, while New Delhi and Washington are increasingly wary of close Sino-Pakistan ties, especially the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

On November 16, Hudson Institute’s South and Central Asia Program hosted a discussion on India-China relations with Dr. Manoj Joshi, a distinguished fellow with the Observer Research Foundation in New Delhi, and Dr. Aparna Pande, a research fellow and director of Hudson Institute’s Initiative on the Future of India and South Asia.
