The century of Chindia?

This page in:

New industries A just released book published by the World Bank looks at the potential for economic cooperation between China and India in the IT sector. It's called New Industries from New Places, and it's been coauthored by Neil Gregory, an adviser in the World Bank's Financial and Private Sector Development department.  

From the description:

This book represents the first rigorous comparison of China and India's new growth sectors. It compares the emergence of India and China as global leaders in hardware and software production as well as the growth performance of private enterprise in the IT manufacturing and IT services sectors in China and India. It examines the economic context and the business environment for private enterprise in China and India, and considers how far differences in economic policies or the business environment explain the observed differences in growth performance. The book concludes by evaluating explanations for the growth performance of each sector in each country and by drawing conclusions for future economic policies and business strategies.

So, will this be the century of Chindia? I'll get back to you after I've read the book...
