Abstract : This study describes the growth of China's economy since Deng Xiaoping set it on a course of market reforms and openness to the outside world in 1979, focusing particularly on the rapid growth of the early 199Os. It also assesses the effects of such major factors as population increases, foreign economic and trade relations, the adequacy of energy resources, and the reversion of Hong Kong to China on China's future economic prospects. In addition, the study evaluates China's current defense capabilities and force projections and their likely effect on peace and stability, particularly in the South China Sea. Finally, it describes the current state of United States-China relations and the way these relations are likely to develop in the remainder of the decade. (AN)
