    BEIJING: China alone can help Narendra Modi translate his election promises to build a strong India into reality, a commentary in a Chinese newspaper said Thursday. The China Daily analysis of Modi's election victory also said New Delhi and Beijing could share information on terrorist groups in the region and launch joint operations against them. Saying "Modi cannot create a miracle to revive the economy as he did to win the election", the commentary said: "There is one country that can help him convert his promises into reality - and that country is China." The commentary, by an assistant professor at the Centre for South Asian Studies which is affiliated to Peking University, said Modi had followed the "Shenzhen model" to develop Gujarat. "So he is believed to know what is needed to revive an economy. Many Indians see him as an ideal leader to develop India's manufacturing sector in which China could play an important role." It said there was a huge scope to increase Sino-Indian trade from about $65 billion to $100 billion in the next two years. But for that, Modi would have to come up with policies to attract Chinese investment to India, barring Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Delhi and Gujarat, "the current atmosphere of foreign direct investment in India is not very attractive for Chinese companies". The daily said both China and India faced similar problems like slowing economies, flight of capital and terrorism. "The two countries, therefore, could share information on terrorist organisations active in the region and launch joint operations to root them out.

    He might take pictures with Abe, but Xi paid for a large chunk of his campaign.

    That is fascinating. Perhaps you care to elaborate (with some good sources) ...

    You are saying PRC President paid "large chunk" for the campaign that successfully got Mr Modi elected. Mr Modi is indebted to the PRC. Are you sure you want to say that.

    As far infrastructure project are concerned Chinese model is the most efficient and cost effective. If ever we would want to start High speed rail in the country, Chinese HSR model is an excellent case study.

    Japan can be used for its capital. Their involvement in infrastructure projects will be unfeasible as it would too costly.

    No they are not. Enemy is a strong word which can be used for Pakistan.

    China is interested in helping India by flooding Indian markets with its goods.

    That is hardly the way to boost the economy, though it will create jobs since it will require a host of mechanics and technicians to keep the Chinese good functional.

    Hardly the way to real progress.

    Modi is very close to Shinzo Abe. So, I think, that is where the boosting is required it will be Japanese technology applied in Indian industry = jobs.

    The Chinese are clever cookies. When they say of helping, they mean helping themselves and that is all!

    china hardly developed a good technology and all they did is copying others and that too with much inferior quality, japan is much better for india cause of their quality and they are our good friend whom we can believe. What china wants is a market in india and nothing more

    Basically yes - agree with you on all points above

    What Modi would be wise and well-congratulated if he succeeds in doing - is to quickly develop a manufacturing
    culture and mindset among India's newly graduated technocrats - and translate this into actual output and products
    to be sold internationally to gain foreign exchange and boost the economy and create jobs

    The Chinese did this at the very start when Mao had his first office in power and India in many ways is at that
    stage today . we have had weak and directionless governments these past 60 years with no proper policy
    and great fear to do things in a big way - perhaps also coupled with the lack of financing .

    If India cannot institute manufacturing as a major industry ( which is the case at the moment ) then we would be
    missing out on a great key to progress, to lift up the nation

    We can do this by , as you suggested consulting with Japan for better quality, but even also by observing what
    China has done without having to go into any kind of agreement with them . Merely observe them from a distance
    and innovate on them by improving quality where really necessary and making other prudent adjustments

    So far Modi is keeping the pace well by asking each ministry for a report card on what's being done right and wrong
    I have hopes on him as many folks do too - hope he doesn't neglect the important area of India having to improve
    substantially in manufacturing . This will also greatly boost our defence manufacturing capability .

    Agreed.

    Drop your claim on Twang and China and India could be long lost friends.

    I guess you have very little knowledge in economics. To make to easier for you, interest rates in Japanese banks are some of the lowest in the world. In a way Japanese are always looking for ways to invest in projects as that it is the only way they can survive. Forget investing money, even if the loan us money for infrastructure project it will be like a soft loan with interest rate of around 2%. The UPA had already cleared Japanese aid for the DMIC project.

    Cabinet clears Japan aid for DMIC project | Business Line

    Your logic that China is our enemy and therefore they should not invest in India is also flawed. US and China do not share any bonhomie, same goes for Japan and China, yet both US and Japan are heavily invested in China. Increase in trade and commerce increases inter-dependence. This reduces the chances of conflict between two countries.

    China cannot do without US, and US cannot do without China.

    Japanese and European technology is highly expensive. You can get equally good quality technology from China at a much cheaper rate. More the government spends, more we the tax payers have to shell out.
