New Delhi, Jan 14 (UNI) With Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Beijing on a historic visit, noted academician and Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy today announced the convening of an international conference, in association with Harvard and Tsinghua Universities, on 'India-China-US Triangle.' Mr Swamy said the world could continue talking about various countries who would matter in global affairs, but it was this 'triad' which would be deciding the 'things to come' in the next 50 years.
''The conference would address four issues on India and China's continued growth, its impact (or threat) on the US economy, their strategic partnership with the US, and the stability factor in both countries over the decades.'' Dwelling on the topic the Harvard professor said there were both pluses and minuses to the proposed 'triad'. ''The debate will churn out the likely scenario, prospects and framework for Indian policy frameworks.'' The important question was whether two of the three would gang up against the third or go together to shape the things for the future, he said. ''There is no scope for individual competition as each of the three have their unique stategic position in world affairs.'' Participated by renowned scholars from the prestigious Harvard University - USA, Tsinghua University - Beijing, and experts and specialists from varous quarters in India, the January 21-23 conference in Kochi (Kerala) was being organised by the Centre for National Renaissance.
