Abstract:

This report constitutes Part III of a three-part study that addresses the question of how extensively and how effectively the Peoples Republic of China PRC utilizes the great reservoir of technology that is potentially available to it from the most advanced industrial countries. The study is part of a larger research program on technology exchange and technology export. Chinas technology-acquisition strategy is examined over the past twenty-odd years, to discover how the strategy is linked to the process of technology diffusion within China, to gain some insight into Chinas probable present and future rate of high-technology advance, and to see the degree to which that advance depends upon outside contributions. The study further examines the implications for U.S. security policy, particularly as it relates to technology transfer and export control.
