    Protectionism is a term commonly reserved for the economic sphere. However, its scope and implications can often be far wider. This is particularly true in the case of security issues that shape trade relations between China and India. While often segregated, security rationales are often more compelling than simply trade rationales in protecting economic interests. This particularly holds true when dealing with such issues as Sino-Indian trade cooperation that relates to infrastructure populating land, sea, and cyberspace. From Huawei’s experience in India to issues over the Brahmaputra dam, this talk will explore how fundamental security concerns are in impacting trade between China and India.
