Why India, China and America?

Of the world’s top ten economies, India, China and US:
  • Constitute 70% of the total population (approx.)
  • Share of the top three economies is 3/4th of the world’s GDP (approx.)
  • Present largest markets in the world
  • Will be largest resource consumers
  • Will raise issues on environment and sustainability
  • Are going to shape the future geo-political landscape

In PPP terms, by 2015, it is projected that these three economies would become close to $42 trillion markets (US‐$18, China‐$17 & India $7). The sheer size & growth of these markets would present the world with a multitude of challenges and opportunities.

This is the new triad power (India, China and America) replacing the old triad power (Japan, Europe and USA). Unlike the old triad power, the new one is not likely to evolve as harmoniously because of the past ideologies of the countries involved (communist ideology of China, Socialist ideology of India and Capitalist ideology of America). Therefore, it needs an active catalyst like ICA Institute to create a harmonious relationship between business leaders, policy makers and the political processes to generate economic growth.

The Strategic Impact of India and the New World Order


India-China-America (ICA) Institute was founded in 2005 and is a registered 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization. ICA Institute provides a non-partisan platform to identify and drive synergies between India, China, and America in the areas of the emerging digital economy, economic growth, and alignment of public policies for the benefit of people.


The mission of the India-China-America (ICA) Institute is to foster greater economic, social, and geopolitical cooperation and collaboration among the three largest consumer economies of the world. The trilateral relationship between India, China, and America will shape the new world order in the digital economy just as the old triad power of Western Europe, Japan, and America shaped the industrial economy.

ICA Institute invites academic scholars, policymakers and world thought leaders to contribute their ideas, research papers, and conferences on economic, social, and political cooperation and collaboration between India, China, and America.
