Question
Hi Amy

I Have a questions today.

What does Hillary mean by saying "a full seat at the table in the region"?
Having another large democracy (India) with a full seat at the table in the region could help encourage more countries to move toward political and economic openness, rather than follow China's example of autocratic state capitalism.
