China`s growth `bad thing` for US, Japanese, French: Poll

China`s growing economic and military clout is a matter of concern in the United States and its allies including Japan and France, according to a Pew Research Center poll released on Friday.



Washington: China`s growing economic and
military clout is a matter of concern in the United States and
its allies including Japan and France, according to a Pew
Research Center poll released on Friday.
China`s emerging military power was considered a "bad
thing" by 88 per cent of survey takers in Japan, 87 per cent
in France, 86 per cent in South Korea, 79 per cent in the
United States and 72 per cent in Germany, the poll found.

China`s economic growth worried the French most (67
per cent), followed by the Germans (58 per cent), Americans
(47 per cent) and British (42 per cent). But in Japan, which
has invested heavily in China, it was seen as a good thing by
a 61-29 per cent margin.

In Africa, where China has been investing heavily
lately, the Chinese economic miracle appears to fascinate
people; 90 per cent of survey takers in Kenya and Nigeria saw
it in a positive light.
From a strategic viewpoint, Indians are most skittish
about China with 44 per cent considering it an enemy, while in
neighboring Pakistan and in Kenya the Asian giant is seen
"more of a partner" by 84 percent of poll takers.

US opinion is split on the matter: 25 consider China a
partner, 17 percent an enemy.

The poll was conducted April 7-May 8 among more than
24,000 people around the world.
