My dear india friends, since many of you like to argue based on empty words, I spent few hours, and also used and correct some other exisiting thread
to provide a relatively integrated data for everybody. Most of the data from USA based articles
We Chinese never, ever, consider India as a serious compitator at this moment. You can ask anybody in Beijing or Shanghai, everybody talks about what
is going on in NY, in Japan, in EU, our compititions are from there. So, please donot compare China with India anymore after this thread.......cause
it is just meaningless and nonsense for most Chinese, really. Please just stop.
