The links maintained by the Indian centre (Buddhist and Hindu) with its Southeast Asian peripheries (arrow 10) are similar to the China–Japan links. It obviously appears that the relative intensity of external flows, as compared with the different masses constituted by the regional formations under consideration, varies considerably from one region to another. The three key central regions, A, B and C (Middle East, China, India), represented, in terms of economic weight, a multiple of what constituted each of the other regions.
It grew regularly to reach 200 million in 1700 (which was still 28 per cent of the world population, estimated at 680 million). Between 1700 and 1800 the demographic trend accelerated and the Chinese population reached 330 million, representing 35 per cent of the world population, estimated at 950 million.
