With no end in sight to the crisis, the Indian government will continue to increase vaccine production for domestic use and halt promised shipments to foreign nations, opening the door for the United States and China to compete for relationships integral to their larger Indo-Pacific strategies.

The EU’s Economy Bounces Back
GDP growth will accelerate in the European Union in the coming months, but risks connected to high debt and deficit levels, along with uncertainty about the future of the economy, will persist. On May 12, the European Commission predicted that the bloc’s GDP will expand by 4.2% in 2021, up from its previous 3.7% growth forecast.

Still, the 2021 GDP expansion will not fully compensate for the 6.1% contraction that the COVID-19 pandemic caused in the bloc in 2020.

Pakistan Asserts Its Place in the Muslim World
Rising domestic pressure is pushing Pakistan to publicly voice concern over pan-Islamic issues. But in doing so, Islamabad will seek to avoid exacerbating the country’s economic crisis by alienating trade and investment partners. During a May 3 meeting, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan urged the Islamabad-based ambassadors to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to work together to counter Islamophobia around the world. A couple of weeks earlier, Pakistan -- which is home to the world’s second-largest Muslim population -- also announced a global campaign to fight blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad in the hopes of driving conversations with the European Union and the United Nations.
