In the ranking of nations China has been positioned second in the world since 2010 in terms of its GDP and some are forecasting that it may take over the US by 2020. India will lie third by 2030.
How do they see the European Union and its Member States? How do they view the public debt crisis? What do they think of the euro? What political developments do they foresee as far as Europe is concerned?
A series of interviews undertaken from June to September 2011 by a young, talented researcher, Karine Lisbonne de Vergeron reveal some surprises and help us to understand how the Chinese and Indian elites perceive the political and economic situation in Europe.

This is the third book in a series launched in 2006, Contemporary Chinese and Indian Views of Europe. It is published jointly by the Robert Schuman Foundation, the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the Global Policy Institute.
