China also has plenty of raw material so things can be manufactured there from start to end. That's not the case with India. Even if we decided to setup infrastructure to support manufacturing, we'd always have to rely on imports.The mighty WTO couldn't do anything to China. China bans any foreign companies from setting up there unless they share their patents or knowledge with Chinese companies. There's still a long list of Western companies working in China who openly gripe about it but still have manufacturing facilities there.
