While China’s largest neighbor India is expected to overtake China by population within only a few years, it is struggling in most other areas to compete with the other giant emerging country. The recent border clashes only led the already complicated relations to deteriorate. As for most countries, India will have to balance furthering its economic potential – that it will not achieve without China – and opposing a China led region by offering other countries opportunities to collaborate.Your host: Nico Luchsinger, Executive Director, Asia Society SwitzerlandModerator: Nico LuchsingerSpeakers: Tanvi Madan, Director and Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution Samir Saran, President, Observer Research Foundation (ORF) Shashi Tharoor, Member of Parliament for Thiruvananthapuram and authorProduction: Serena Jung, Program and Communications Director, Asia Society SwitzerlandEditing: Denise Staubli, Program Manager, Asia Society SwitzerlandSources:Asia Society Switzerland State of Asia 2020: The Indian Imperative, November 27, 2020Asia Society Switzerland Webcast 'The Relations Between China and India Have Seen a Stabilization, but No Resolution' , April 16, 2020Book Fateful Triangle: How China Shaped US-India Relations during the Cold War by Tanvi Madan, Brookings Institution Press, 2020Book  Pax Sinica: Implications for the Indian Dawn by Samir Saran and Akhil Deo, Rupa Publications 2019Book The Battle Of Belonging: On Nationalism, Patriotism, And What It Means To Be Indian by Shashi Tharoor, 2020

China’s relations with the historically more remote, maritime and Muslim-majority countries Indonesia and Malaysia are complex and historically intertwined. For both Indonesia and Malaysia, China is a vital economic partner, but tensions in the South China Sea and anti-China sentiments remain prevalent. The Indo-Pacific being home to significant global trading routes is not only of strategic importance to China. Once again it has become the focus of a global contest for power.Your host:  Nico Luchsinger, Co-Executive Director, Asia Society SwitzerlandModerator: Richard Maude, Executive Director, Policy, Asia Society AustraliaSpeaker: Ben Bland, Director of the Southeast Asia Program, the Lowy Institute Production: Denise Staubli, Program Officer, Asia Society SwitzerlandSources: Asia Society Switzerland Mini-Conference The Giant Next Door – China In Southeast Asia, The Case of Indonesia and Malaysia, November 10, 2020: Asia Society Switzerland Mini-Conference The Giant Next Door – China In Southeast Asia, keynote presentation by Sebastian Strangio, November 10, 2020: Man of Contradictions: Joko Widodo and the struggle to remake Indonesia, by Ben Bland, 2020In the Dragon's Shadow: Southeast Asia in the Chinese Century, by Sebastian Strangio, 2020
