What made China stronger than India?
Gurneet Singh, works at Students
The question is highly vague, as in what sense is China stronger than India because there are some fields where India holds tough ground.
so atlast it just comes down to one thing that China started its growth spree in 1978 and India kick started in 1991, that makes China 13 years ahead of China.
as forbes correctly said that India is roughly 10 years behind China ( India is as much developed today as China was 10 years ago)
however India being democratic is slow in development conpared to communist China but it surely has promising prospects compared to china.
simply put its like turtle and rabbit story. India is democractic Turtle and China is authoratarian Rabbit.
and i suppose you must be aware of its moral:
slow and steady wins the race.
By 2050, India will have overtaken the US as the world's second largest economy

Industry is the foundation of a country strong, but the development of industry needs a lot of conditions.China was able to rise rapidly, because attaches great importance to the industrial base, and try to create conditions for industrial development.

China went through a lot of harsh changes on a massive scale during the reign of Chairman/Emperor Mao & his "experiments" - unified government, mass collectivisation, mass industrialisation, the cultural revolution, after Emperor Mao's passing - the 1 child policy - they all have effects.

chinese economy itself is a myth and inflated one.
always demand has to be matched by supply and its consumption. Now so many ghost cities and empty cities constructed there.., these constructions would have contributed to GDP right ? when there is no consumption of these real estate how the demand got generated and how the supply matched it ? mystery right ?
there were several downward revisions of repo rate for encouraging the investors to take more loans for investments ? how can it be when the economy is already doing well ?
why a economy would like to devaluate its currency when its economy is doing well ? just to control the unmanageable imports or balance of trade ?
the calculations of GDP itself is thorough by upward integration from grass root level.. this was told by their ex-finance guy
the labour cost is increasingly costly
there is a huge unemployment also..
stock market is the overall index of the health of the economy. but chinese market is highly fluctuating ? why. ?
there are several other factors.. which i could not recall. it is not transparent and media-free economy, hence most of the key indicators are harassed and filtered. we just cant rely on the figures.
Yet their economy would be bigger than ours, but not to the extent it is boasted

Low labour cost for manufacturing facilites, most of our phones are built in china because the companies dont have to pay the labourers much money. In india smaller companies find it hard to invest. This is way china is always infront of India, like india is way ahead of Pakistan.
IM a chinese,now in india.
in fact i dont like india,because i think india dont have rule in everything! this cause the country slowly.
in china i cant find a taxi driver say“i want to sleep，so you get another car” ，in the next car，the driver will also say like this！so how？even there are many cars in the street ，you still need walking to destination！this just in one way！
many people say India will surpass china in 20 years，because there are 75％ young people；they never think that what the Indian are thinking，they just want to sleep！

Stronger - should not be used in general terms. Economically, yes it is however militarily I think both of them are almost neck to neck, technically, there are areas where India is ahead while there are areas where China is fairly ahead of India.
Economically China is ahead as they have had a head start over India. They started long before India(India started in 1991). India will never be match their pace as India is a democracy while China is a authoritarian regime.
The decision making is slower in India as the governments think of the next elections when taking decisions and the hard decisions are difficult to come by whereas in China there is nothing like an election to think of and the communist party is under total control.
Emotionally I think India is much stronger, much tolerant and much vibrant country than our neighbor.

A totally wrong question, India is much more stronger than china.
In china we don't have human rights, we eat dangerous food and factories destroyed the environment so bad, we will all die cancer or poison one day. China's GDP is also fake, our government made it bigger when they count it, most of us are still struggling for food every day, and our military equipment is all from WWII, our army has no actual fighting experience in the past decats.
We have nothing please don't invade us.

China’s GDP is almost 5 times of India’s
China is already no 1 GDP in PPP terms.
China is likely to be no 1 in GDP-Nominal , beating US , in less than 10 years.
China has demonstrated that their manufacturing skills , Efficiency and Productivity are among the best .
China has a massive Foreign Exchange reserve ( almost 3 trillion US $) with which they can carry out Economic & military Expansionism
China is in the process of getting into next orbit of growth , from Mfg domination to Technology Development , Innovation & giving a boost to Domestic Consumption . Perhaps they will be world leaders in some Frontier Technologies soon.
India too has potential , we have an equal if not better intellectual capital . But their Eco-system brings out the best skills, Productivity , encourages technology Development
In India , we are trapped by “ Perception wars” , “ Vote bank Politics” . We have a long way to go to catch up with China

Trust me dude, India is actually much more developed than China.
I was born in China and have lived there for 20 years. There is totally no freedom in China. All of the government’s goal is to increase the God damn GDP. It does not care about the living of common people at all.
My farmland was taken away by a businessman because he wanted to build an apartment on it. He forced my father to sold the land for $10 each square meters and sold the apartments for $10,000 each square meters. And this is why the GDP increases so rapidly. There is no use to call the police but fortunately, my family succeeded fleeing away from China and moved to India.
Now we feel like we are living in paradise as we enjoy all the freedom in India. People in India are so nice and thanks to the India government, we now get a farmland and can raise the whole family with it. It is not big but quite enough to help us start our new birth again!
God bless India!
All glory to Modiji!
