Well, the Indians and the Chinese are also building indegenous designs that will both be out in the next 1-3 years. The Indians intend a total of three large carriers...40-45,000 ton range. The chinese will probably end up with more, 3-5 in the 65,000 ton range.
Both nations are also building very modern and healthy strong escort vessels that mimick the AEGIS vessels we have.

The Chinese are also renovating another Soviet era carrier of the same class. Maybe the two ships can have a ski jumping competition.
