Narendra Modi: The Power to Transform India, and its Relations with China? | Foreign Correspondents Club of China

Event Details

The election of Narendra Modi as India’s new prime minister promises to transform the economic and diplomatic prospects for the world’s largest democracy. Modi, a frequent visitor to China while running the Indian state of Gujarat, is hoping to imitate China’s economic success story, improve relations with Beijing and attract significant Chinese investment into India’s creaking infrastructure. But he is also a divisive figure domestically and a strident nationalist, who is likely to defend India’s territorial interests fiercely. Come join Simon Denyer, author of “Rogue Elephant: Harnessing the Power of India’s Unruly Democracy”, speak about what Modi’s landslide election victory means for India and for China.
