Chinese Investment in India
First of all, before knowing the shareholding pattern, we know some terms related to it so that you can understand it further.
When the volume of a startup company exceeds one billion or more, it is called a unicorn startup.
By 2019, India has achieved its fourth position in unicorn startups across the world, with the US at number one, China at number two, and the UK at number three. If we talk about in the numbers, then
US-194, China-99, UK-20, and India-18. India ranks higher than Germany, France, and South Korea.
Names of some of China’s biggest investment companies- (Chinese Investment ferm)
- Tencent Holding Ltd.
- Ant financial Alibaba
- Fosun International
The people of India are very naive and we love our country and due to the nefarious activities of China we do not directly use their product, but China has indirectly penetrated almost all sectors of India. We give some example below
- Toutiao is a Chinese company which is not used by Indian but they entered in India by DailyHunt.
- In the logistics sector, China enters India by Delhivery courier service and ExpressBees.
- Alipay is a Chinese digital payment platform which is not used by Indian but they entered by Paytm
- Alibaba is an E-commerce sector company which is not used by Indian but they entered by Paytm mall, Flipkart, and Snapdeal.
Now the question will arise in your mind that we should or should not use Chinese products. Many countries believe that Chinese companies share people’s data with their government, so as not to use Chinese companies needed. we give some example below
- Huawei is a telecommunication company that is banned by the US, Canada, UK but India takes no action against Huawei.
- The Indian government is also supporting China in its investment, as NPCI is an Indian government company that is trying to promote its UPI service through WeChat and truecaller, which is in India alone.
China’s investment continues to grow in India, which is not good news f. China’s investment in India’s startups’ ecosystem rose to 3.9 billion dollars in 2019, up from $2.02 billion in 2018.
