A new report from the US National Intelligence Council identifies China and India as potential ‘heavyweights” in the balance of world power. From AFP:
Titled “Global Trends 2025 — A World Transformed,” the 121-page report was released Thursday to stimulate debate and thinking as a new US administration prepares to take power.
It warned that US security and economic interests could face new challenges if China becomes a peer competitor with a strong military and a dynamic, energy-hungry economy.
“Few countries are poised to have more impact on the world over the next 15-20 years than China,” the report said.
