China–India relations, also called Sino-Indo relations or Indian-Chinese relations, refers to the bilateral relationship between China and India. Although the relationship has been cordial, there have been border disputes. The modern relationship began in 1950 when India was among the first countries to end formal ties with the Republic of China (Taiwan) and recognize the People's Republic of China as the legitimate government of Mainland China. China and India are the two most populous countries and fastest growing major economies in the world. Growth in diplomatic and economic influence has increased the significance of their bilateral relationship.
