This study reviews if and how China and India compete with each other for exports markets and investments by trying to conclude comprehensive agreements with partners in Asia. It is found that for China, India is not a focal point of its regional trade policy, but, vice-versa, India considers the People's Republic as a stumbling block for its economic ambitions. Yet, New Delhi's capability to keep up with China is considerably constrained, and therefore it tries to compensate its lack of lenience towards regional groupings with bilateral pacts.
