Chinese Technology Transfer in the 1990s: Current Experiences, Historical Problems and International Perspectives

Chinese Technology Transfer in the 1990s examines - with special reference to the reform policy and encouragement of foreign direct investment - scientific policy, research and development and technology transfer in the People's Republic of China. The book presents new original work by leading Chinese and British scholars who provide an up-to-date account of recent developments in the rapidly changing process of technological modernization, and of the current problems China is now facing. It demonstrates the extent to which technology policy and transfer from abroad remain central to the successful economic development of China. The authors also highlight the character of the continuing debate within China on these issues. Complementing these articles are authoritative discussions on technology transfer, innovation and industrial development from theoretical, historical and international perspectives. The book will be of interest to governments, international agencies interested in the economic development of China, academics and graduate students.
