China is one of the world's most significant countries. It is one of the world's largest and most populated countries and it is one of the world's oldest civilizations, having centuries of cultural tradition and achievement. Unquestionably, it will play an increasingly important role in the affairs of the Asia-Pacific region. Since 1949 when the People's Republic was established a succession of Chinese leaders has perceived a gap between the economic and technological capacity of the country and that of major western nations. This course examines the approaches which have been adopted by the Chinese government to stimulate economic and technological development. In particular, it focuses on contemporary policies and on the patterns of continuity and change.
