China, obviously, has great influence in Asia, not only because of its land mass but because of its position in global politics and economics. China has ramped up trade with everyone across the world and as a result, its economy and clout have increased as India’s has been decreasing. In response, India has increased its relationships with Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka, both through the ASEAN and the BIMSTEC coalitions. However, India is not currently powerful enough to threaten these nations’ relationships with China (Hong, 2007, p. 133). For its part, China would prefer to work with India rather than see it rise as a power in its own right. Encouraging interdependent economies and setting aside political differences would stabilize the entire region.

To resolve the situation, it is in the best interests of all to strengthen partnerships.
