News: Can the Dragon and Elephant Dance Together? Sri Lanka as a Case Study
Posted Date: 10/08/2018 (Friday)
Key Points • Despite concerns to the contrary, China and India are not necessarily at loggerheads with each other in Sri Lanka. There is enough space in the Indian Ocean Region for both to grow. • Sri Lanka can benefit in its overall growth story by carefully balancing its relations with India and China simultaneously. • It is imperative for both India and China to overcome their long-standing trust deficit; a stable region is a key element if both are to enjoy continued robust economic growth. • A direct, large-scale locking of horns between the two Asian giants does not appear likely in the near future, although both will strive to maintain equally assertive stances.
