The survey showed that about 50% of Chinese citizens have favourable influence of Beijing. And 50% praised the Modi government.

The survey revealed about 70% believe that anti-China sentiment in India is very high and more than 30% believe that the relations between both the nations will certainly improve. However, 9% people believe that improvement in the India-China relationship will be for a short term and 25% believe that the two countries will maintain a strong relationship for a long time.
