The three countries: India, China and Pakistan had maintained the same growth rate till the late 1970s after which China accelerated it growth rate by introducing reforms. The manufacturing industry started contributing in majority to the GDP and the dependence on agriculture got reduced. Health care services and other indicators of human development show that China has achieved development in almost all the spheres. India, has grown economically, but is behind China. Infrastructural facilities are still not too good and still a vast number of the population depends on agriculture for their livelihood. India has a democracy while in China the lack of political freedom and Human Rights remains an issue. In Pakistan, economic growth was higher than India till the period of reforms after which the growth rate had a steep decline. The government is now trying to stem the rot and is taking initiatives in order to attain high economic growth.
