A paper on the nature and significance of the trade agreements of Communist China. The author examines the provisions of the trade agreements, their relation to other international economic agreements, the available but incomplete statistics of the trade of Communist China, and what is known about the history of the agreements and the policies associated with them. The economic aspects of the trade agreements are emphasized, rather than the political or military aspects. 132 pp.
