As China in its quest for becoming the next super power has many hurdles to cross. One of the most significant will be economic. China has an export oriented economy which depends upon consumers from Europe, Japan, the United States and rest of the world. Due to recent economic slowdown consumption rate in all the major markets have gone down and this has hit the Chinese economy on a large scale. To wither this storm China must built up a steady economic system which will boost the number of domestic consumers.

Post India-China war in 1962, the relationship between the two nations has always been tense. The Tibet matter is major among other issues between India and China. India’s acceptance of Tibet as sovereign nation is being considered anti-China activity by China as they consider Tibet to be part of China. Intervention of Chinese forces into Indian states like Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim has been a reason of conflict between two nations. Recently water resources have also caused lot of stress between two countries as China has started building a dam on Bramhaputra River. This scenario is likely to change as global economic power is being decentralized. Even Asia is being considered as emerging economic powerhouse. India and China will have to shake hands if they aspire to control world economy in future.

Both India and China are full of young dynamic and talented population. This can prove to be their biggest tool in bridging the gap with the help of youth exchange programs for further development of mutual relationship between India and China. Both the countries can equally benefit from exchange of visits of budding politicians, industry leaders and academics.
