    India needs to learn that economic development comes before a naval buildup : Chinese Media
    [​IMG]

    "China is planning to build more aircraft carriers to bolster its maritime capabilities, which could pose a bigger threat to India," India's Economic Times reported recently. With concerns expressed by Indian media outlets about the rise of China's military strength, the two countries need to avert an arms race, especially at a time when China's first domestically built aircraft carrier is being prepared for launch in late April.

    Aircraft carriers are seen as symbols of a nation's military might, but the construction of them consumes huge amounts of resources, thus requiring developing countries to learn how to keep their military ambitions in check. China had no aircraft carriers until 2012 when its first one, the Liaoning, was commissioned, adding to the evidence that China's pursuit of military development has been in synch with its overall economic expansion.

    As the world's second-largest economy, China is now capable of building a strong navy to safeguard the security of strategic maritime channels. China's construction of its first aircraft carrier is a result of economic development. The country would have finished work on it several years ago if Beijing had simply wanted to engage in an arms race to have more influence in the Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean regions.

    India itself could be taken as a negative example for a buildup of aircraft carriers. India's first aircraft carrier was purchased from the UK in 1957, but the vessel was not adequate for modern strategic requirements, forcing India to develop its own aircraft carrier. The country unveiled its first domestically built aircraft carrier in 2015, but the Wall Street Journal said in 2016 that top US naval engineers discovered the carrier wouldn't be operational for up to a decade. New Delhi is perhaps too impatient to develop an aircraft carrier. The country is still in its initial stage of industrialization, and there will be many technical obstacles that stand in the way of a buildup of aircraft carriers.

    In the past few decades, India and China have taken different paths in terms of aircraft carriers, but the different results achieved by the two countries point to the underlying importance of economic development. New Delhi should perhaps be less eager to speed up the process of building aircraft carriers in order to counter China's growing sway in the Indian Ocean, and focus more on its economy.

    There is a proverb in our language .
    'Neither this stuff cant swallow because of the bitterness nor cant spit it out because of sweetness'.

    This is the condition of China :D

    They cant itch us like they did to poor ASEAN nation ,nor they cant ignore us because of our large market.

    Iam afraid, but they are right, i know we need to protect our selves, but look how china progressed all these years, we need to start looking at them like a respected big brother of ours, i mean lets diffuse these tensions and get back our land with some sort of deal and then make an Alliance with China and russia, west is too inclined towards freedome for all with oil reserves, they have made a mess out of Middle East, next is south China sea....

    The proxy of Chinese Govt. their media seems like looking India with too much attention these days they can't swallow how bold India is now compared to before. Economic powerhouse coupled with World Recognition seems irking Chinese a lot these days.

    Funny enough nothing more they can do about it other than giving toothless statements... I would say, heck do what they can do...

    Anyways they are not in position to wage any economic or conventional war anymore. Their Proxy Pak is already being put in place...

    Firstly I don't know which China Meida said this, at least I didn't find the Chinese version from China trusted medias. Even there is really some Chinese people saying this to India people, why you think this is a humiliation? I think this is what exactly China has been doing in the past 40 years. Developing economic firstly sounds like valuable lessons China got from the past 40 years via exploring from the darkness. Sharing this valuable experience is the humiliation to you? I cannot understand.

    He is your ally, a Pakistani in disguise.

    BTW, we have been operating aircraft carrier for nearly 5 decades & that experience in carrier aviation is the reason for heart-burn of PLAN & their propaganda department.

    Primitive industrialization lol, China is just a few ranks ahead of India in manufacturing process sophistication yet ChiCom wants their citizens to believe that they are ahead of Germany.

    China did it because of helplessness, not out of choice.

    Speak back against?
    I think you gone too far, dear. Till date we saw two different type of dramas. Both has its own timings too. Only at very specific time China cry for Arunachal Pradesh and only at very specific time India cry for Tibet.
    Again they both does cry, but at very specific time only (and not always). Better short out that riddle first.

    We are progressing at a nice rate and we spend just less than two and half percentage on our output on defense. China should mind their own business and give their people some right who are slaves for many centuries and have faced all humiliation in the world. They deserve some free life in this phase of china when china is becoming prosperous and its economic advantage should couple with the freedom of their citizen for better life.

    GOI should also use Indian media to question China how many people died due to starvation when China made nuclear weapons and nuke submarines, ICBM s.

    What a load of crap.

    Let's go back to 2005-06 when Chinese GDP was same as indian now (nominal).

    IMG_20170425_163218.jpg
    Now what was the military budget ?

    IMG_20170425_163453.jpg
    If we believe PRC official budget then it is very close to current Indian budget. ie, $40-45 billion.

    If we go for the other estimates then it is twice as much.

    I would suggest you to get a better understanding of your own country's budget before committing on others.

    India spends just below 2% of its GDP on defence as compared to a mediocre nation like Pakistan which spends around 3.5-4% on defence while internationally any nation which is as big as ours spends around 3-3.5% of GDP on defence so we are very modest with our defence budget. IMO GOI should increase capital layout for IN and IAF which are now most important for country's defence as future wars will be fought over Sea and Air and any nation which has strong Navy and Air Force will only be the winner.
