The pursuit of advanced technologies has been a persistent preoccupation of Chinese and Indian leaders in the modern era. Today, debate surrounds whether and how fast they are rising vis-a-vis the United States and nowhere is this debate more important or more complex than in the domain of high technology. Andrew Kennedy will compare China and India's technological ascents, with particular interest in information and communication technologies.
