    WASHINGTON: India is listed as the third most powerful country in the world after the US and China and the fourth most powerful bloc after the US, China and the European Union in a new official US report.

    The new global power line-up for 2010 also predicted that New Delhi's clout in the world will further rise by 2025, according to "Global Governance 2025" jointly issued by the National Intelligence Council (NIC) of the US and the European Union's Institute for Security Studies (EUISS).

    Using the insights of a host of experts from Brazil, Russia, India and China, among others, and fictionalised scenarios, the report illustrates what could happen over the next 25 years in terms of global governance.

    In 2010, the US tops the list of powerful countries/regions, accounting for nearly 22 percent of the global power.

    The US is followed by China with European Union at 16 percent and India at eight percent. India is followed by Japan, Russia and Brazil with less than five percent each.

    According to this international futures model, by 2025 the power of the US, EU, Japan and Russia will decline while that of China, India and Brazil will increase, even though there will be no change in this listing.

    By 2025, the US will still be the most powerful country of the world, but it will have a little over 18 percent of the global power.

    The US will be closely followed by China with 16 percent, European Union with 14 percent and India with 10 per cent.

    "The growing number of issues on the international agenda, and their complexity, is outpacing the ability of international organisations and national governments to cope," the report warns.

    This critical turning point includes issues of climate change, ethnic and regional conflicts, new technology, and the managing of natural resources.

    The report also highlights the challenges proponents of effective global governance face.

    On one hand, rapid globalization, economic and otherwise, has led to an intertwining of domestic politics and international issues and fuelled the need for more cooperation and more effective leadership.

    But on the other hand, an increasingly multipolar world, often dominated by non-state actors, has put a snag in progress toward effectual global governance, it said.

    I am somehow not quite taken in by all this soft soaping that the US does.

    They are the one who soft soaped on an 'emerging superpower'.

    Russia does not feature ahead of India? That is something of a surprise - as per the report are they suggesting that from a superpower, Russia is nowhere in the reckoning? Doubtful assertion!

    India is going places no doubt in spite of it being done by muddling through.

    However, we require no ones leave to know so.

    anyhow, such a article is a valueless cheap flattering from USA.

    its only effection is to make Yankee's competitors lose will to work hard and self-contented.

    I don't know why so many indian are so happy to read such a cheap flattering. but I as a Chinese am very wary of such a valueless cheap flattering with concealed intentions.

    And, I don't hope that at that time Indians will be still happilly discuss a articel from CCTV ,that "China officially reports India as the second most powerful nation !".

    guy, when you care so much about a cheap word from yankees, you take it granted that Yankees are your big brother.

    Mr bad guy a CCTV report in 2025 or even in 2050 would have zero credibility
    Unless and untill China has a free media ,you can say anything you want

    It will be the voice of Chinese Communist Party or the Chinese Govt

    BG you have come here after a long time. Don't let it be your last. You are doing nothing but flame. No one is getting flattered. But yes there is a lot of overconfidence in people like you who think other countries are third rate. That one day will surely prove to be your undoing.

    China will never be able to beat US ,they KNOW IT very well .

    On the contrary it will get FRUSTRATED by a RISING India and the INVINCIBLE USA

    By the way TAIWAN ,JAPAN and , SOUTH KOREA and VIETNAM will also be STRONG nations by 2025

    the best thing that we can say in this thread is
    WE DONT NEED THE US TO TELL US THAT WE ARE A SUPERPOWER OR WE ARE NOT neither this should be a cause to rejoice nor jump up and down the us has over the years used various powers to their advantage now it needs india so its superpower day india gets strong enough then it will become evil power , take the classic example of china -us relations over the past 50 years

    cannot believe a girl working in a Bank can make such a brainless comment. May god bless China with people with some level of IQ and Intelligence.
