    Director General Manohar Parrikar IDSA, Amb. Sujan R. Chinoy’s Occasional Paper on US-China rivalry, titled ‘US-China Rivalry: A Strategic Moment for India?’ has been published in the May 2020 issue of Institute of Chinese Studies (ICS), Delhi.

    US-China tensions can broadly be classified into four major areas: Trade, Technology, Territorial issues and Tenets, which allude to values, ideology and the advocacy of particular systems of political and economic governance (T4). In addition, there is growing rivalry across the Military domain (M). To this incendiary mix can be added a new bone of contention, i.e., the origins of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and demands for accountability (C).
