China and India are the world’s largest developing economies and also two of the most populous countries. China, which now has more than 1.3 billion people, is expected to grow to more than 1.4 billion by 2050, and India with a population of 1 billion will overtake China to be the most populous countries with about a 1.6 billion population. These population giants are home to 37 percent of the world's population today. In addition, China and India have achieved notable success in their economic development characterized by a high rate of GDP growth in the last two decades. Together the two countries account already for almost a fifth of world GDP.
