Rise of China and India: Implications for Building an "Asian Community"




Vishakha N. Desai, President, Asia Society


Tuesday, August 28, 2007


Little Theatre, NCPA, Mumbai


Registration: 6:00 PM

Talk: 6:30 PM

Reception: 7:30-8:30 PM


How will the emergence of India and China impact the creation of an Asian community? What are the potential challenges and consequences of developing an Asian community given current bilateral and multilateral relations between China, India and the rest of Asia? How will the resultant intra-Asian dynamics influence the geo-economic and geo-political world order? Dr. Vishakha N. Desai, President of Asia Society, will address these questions both in the context of historical and cultural ties, and current political and economic relations among countries in the region. 


Dr. Vishakha N. Desai was appointed President of Asia Society in 2004. Prior to her appointment as President she served as Asia Society's Senior Vice President and Director of the Museum and Cultural Programs. She also taught at the University of Massachusetts, Boston University and Columbia University. Dr. Desai holds a B.A. in Political Science from Bombay University and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Asian Art History from the University of Michigan.
