Decoupling of Chinese and Indian economies is against trend: Sun Weidong

The decoupling of Chinese and Indian economies is against the trend and the two economies are interdependent in the age of globalisation, Chinese ambassador Sun Weidong said on July 30.

Speaking at a webinar organised by the Institute of Chinese Studies (ICS) Delhi on `India-China Relations: The Way Forward', he said both China and India have been deeply embedded in the global industrial and supply chain.

"According to a local statistics in India, in 2018-19, 92 per cent of Indian computers, 82 per cent of TV sets, 80 per cent of optical fibres, 85 per cent motorcycle components are imported from China...Countless examples like these are the reflection of globalisation.

And globalisation has deepened the interconnection between countries... Whether you want it or not, the trend is difficult to reverse," Sun said.

"The development of economic and trade cooperation between our two countries is determined by the international division of labour, it is also the natural choice of enterprises and consumers for our two countries under the market-oriented principles.

Decoupling of Chinese and Indian economies is against the trend and will only lead to a lose-lose outcome," he said.
