    '75 percent Chinese DON'T like India'


    Wary of India's economic growth, an overwhelming majority of Chinese have a negative opinion about India, a recent survey has found.

    "Roughly a quarter (23 percent) have a favourable opinion of India, while 62 percent offer a negative opinion," a survey done by the Washington-based Pew Research Centre showed.

    "Currently, only 44 percent of Chinese say their southern neighbour's expanding economy is positive for China, down from six-in-ten in 2010," the centre said.

    Meanwhile, those saying India's growing economy is a bad thing has almost doubled over the same period.

    India's views towards China are even more negative.

    "Only 23 percent of Indians describe their country's relationship with China as one of cooperation and only 24 percent think China's growing economy is a good thing for India," it said.

    The survey showed that the Chinese had a better attitude towards Pakistan as compared to India.

    "China's relationship with Pakistan is much brighter, with nearly half of Chinese (49 percent) seeing the relationship as one of cooperation and only 10 percent describing it as one of hostility," Pew said.

    Chinese attitude towards Russia is favourably balanced, with 48 percent expressing a positive and 38 percent a negative view.

    In contrast, perceptions of the US and the United Nations are roughly divided, with 43 percent holding a favorable opinion of each.

    Also, only about a third see the European Union (33 percent) and Pakistan (31 percent) positively.

    Chinese perceptions of these foreign nations and institutions have mostly held steady since last year, the report said.


    Similarly, Iran receives largely negative ratings, with only 21 percent expressing a favorable view of the Islamic Republic, a decline of eight percentage points since 2011.

    According to Pew, while 39 percent Chinese see their country's relationship with the US as one of cooperation, this is down sharply from 2010, when 68 percent held this view.

    Meanwhile, over a quarter (26 percent) say the relationship with the US is one of hostility, up from eight percent two years ago.

    Similarly, 39 percent in China view their relationship with India as one of cooperation, down significantly since 2010, when 53 percent saw the relationship positively.

    "Views toward China's longtime regional rival, Japan, are even dimmer, with 41 percent- saying that relations between China and Japan are hostile, and only three-in-ten describing them as cooperative," said Pew.

    In reverse the same study also indicated that 75% of Indian do not like Chinese.

    Hence likes and dislikes are fully balanced.

    It is the right of the Chinese to like or dislike India.

    actually, the results show that both chinese and indians don't like each other.

    what is this? india was growing faster in 2010, and at that time most chinese (60%) said it was a good thing.

    now india is growing slowly, so now we have become more wary? that doesn't make sense.
