“Our two countries, both situated in the bright and glorious continent of Asia, India to the south-west and China to the north-east, spread out lordly in different directions but yet are linked up at the main line, just like the two wheels of a carriage or the two wings of a bird.”
---- Chinese Scholar Tan Yun Shan
The essence of Tan Yun Shan’s words best describes the spirit behind the setting up of the India China Economic Council (ICEC). With a historical past, we felt the need to give shape to a fruitful future. Hence ICEC was set up in 2003 with the primary goal of giving more muscle to the relationship between India and China: To ensure that the two governments, our societies and the people understand and address each others’ needs resulting in common goals.
