The Chinese model for science and technology: Its relevance for other developing countries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper examines the growth of an indigenous scientific and technological capability through self-reliance (the "Chinese model"). It is a strategy that offers developing countries an alternative to dependence on technological transfer from the industrially advanced nations. The Chinese policy focuses on three major areas: choice of technologies, rural industrialization to balance agricultural and industrial growth, and mobilization of manpower resources to research and implement technologies for increased growth.
