Abstract : The paper contains an analysis of the foreign trade patterns and economic policies of the People's Republic of China. Insights into both foreign policy and defense policy objectives are sought by examining the content, quantity, and direction of PRC foreign trade. PRC political choices with respect to the nature of trading partners as well as defense choices with respect to the most efficient means of obtaining the necessary materials for defense requirements are investigated with a view toward establishing their interrelationships.
