India, China trade flows and market access

An article in Bloombergbusinessweek (Feb 27,2012) describes the 43 billion dollars of exports from China to India and the 10 billion exports from India to China. This trade imbalance has resulted in 46 complaints by India to the WTO about Chinese companies.  Does the success of Chinese suppliers suggest a market access issue or just the competitiveness of Chinese companies ? Should the Indian government provide similar assistance to its own companies as it alleges the Chinese givernment does or should it respond by closing its markets to Chinese companies or raise import duties ? Do global supply chains evolve in a balanced manner or should they be expected to evolve in an unbalanced manner across country boundaries ?
