Economic Security and Sino-American Relations

Progress Under Pressure

Kenneth Boutin

China and the United States have reached a crossroads where their economic relationship is concerned, as the shared interest in economic prosperity and complementary economic strengths that provide the common ground of industrial collaboration are threatened by increasing attention to economic facets of national security. This trend is encouraging policies which potentially undermine the basis of Sino-American industrial integration. This book explores the basis, nature and impact of evolving economic security agendas in the United States and China.

Chapter 5: Manufacturing security: Sino-American production relations

Kenneth Boutin


Sino-American production relations are well developed and represent the least problematic facet of their industrial relationship from a security perspective. Relations between American and Chinese high-technology industry have been mutually beneficial and contribute to comprehensive economic security in both states. Growing American concern over the extent to which production relations threaten the American defence-industrial base are driving efforts to minimize their impact in this respect. The American government seeks to limit the extent to which American high-technology industry relies on production inputs from China. This includes components, sub-components, and raw materials. These efforts are tempered by the requirements of comprehensive economic security. The Chinese government recognizes the importance of production relations with American industry, particularly in terms of comprehensive economic security, and strives to maintain the established production relationship.
