Chinese Arms Transfers: Purposes, Patterns, and Prospects in the New World Order

By R. Bates Gill | Go to book overview

public of China -- the possibilities for regional influence have been limited, but not impossible. Thus, the PRC's present-day active and growing concern for regional influence in Asia is a relatively new development, the long-term effects of which are difficult to discern with any certainty. However, the assertion can be made with some confidence that, through arms transfers, the PRC has worked with a significant measure of success to effect a stronger presence in the world, particularly around its periphery. The growing regional influence of the PRC is a trend in the world balance of power and peace that is likely to continue and in which PRC arms transfers will play a significant part. Time-honored Chinese wisdom has it that even an extremely long journey must begin with one step. In its never-ending quest for greater security, arms transfers can help China make significant strides toward this elusive goal.
