The big three.

In Blogging, Globalization, India on February 14, 2007 at 10:06 am

I was chuckling at the caption on the BBC news website today, referring to China, India and Russia as the ‘Big Three’. In one way the description is apt indeed – the two most populous nations in the world, and the world’s largest country. What a formidable team. And what a formidable coalition if they were to join and form a unified entity of sorts. China and India with their super industrious economies that are already steering global economics in one way or the other. With the capitalization of their largest resource – human capital, they are indeed, the new ‘superpowers’ of the world (even though I hate that term). The challenge ahead of politicians in both nations is to be able to make the most of this advantage, striking while the iron is hot. There is a need to address the pressing needs of the country in the area of planning and development, poverty and healthcare for the masses.

It will be interesting to see with time, how and what roles the Big Three play in the world. Their global presence will definitely have a large and far reaching impact on other nations in some way or the other.
