India’s Sino-US hedging sticks to old balance

However, New Delhi also has to remember that such flip-flops on major power relations may also put itself in a difficult position. Considering that the low-hanging fruit, if there was any, has already been plucked, such strategy may amount to little at the end of the day.

China strives to make leap to innovation

The government has done a wonderful job in setting up science and technology parks, research centers and helping the universities to strengthen their research efforts. China is now investing about 2 percent of GDP in research and development which is about the same percent of GDP on innovation as the EU.
