China and India may be neighbors but, politically, they share an uneasy relationship. A war in 1962 and a long-standing border dispute have led to a sense of distrust on both sides which often seeps into business relations. But Prof Anil Gupta is optimistic. He believes that business relations between China and India, two of the world’s fastest growing economies, are going to change for the better especially because India and China are likely to be among the four largest global economies by 2025. Additionally, he feels, India’s intent to usher in an infrastructure revolution will give a boost to Chinese companies.
