Key demand of the question.

The question wants us to write in detail as to how Chinese slowdown may impact Indian economy- in bad as well as the good way.

Structure of the answer

Introduction- write a few introductory lines about the  Chinese economic slowdown. E.g China’s economic growth cooled to its slowest in 28 years in 2018. China’s Dec exports unexpectedly fell 4.4% from a year earlier, with demand in most of its major markets weakening. Imports also saw a shock drop, falling 7.6% — the biggest decline since July 2016.


DIscuss in points as to how Indian economy could be affected due to Chinese slowdown. E.g

  • China has the biggest share in India’s imports, at more than 16%.
  • It is also the fourth largest export market for the country, with a 4.39% share. So the impact on India is unlikely to be huge.
  • If yuan weakens, it makes imports from China cheaper; excess capacities in China could lead to dumping of products. This could hurt Indian companies.
  • India’s exports of raw material to China could suffer.
  • On the positive side, India could become a destination for Chinese companies; it would make economic sense for Chinese companies to shift manufacturing of products they sell in India.
  • India could  also gain from Chinese help in infrastructure.
