520    "China's aerospace industry has advanced at an impressive 
       rate over the past decade. While some of this progress can
       be attributed to rapidly growing governmental support for 
       China's aerospace sector, China's aerospace capabilities 
       have also benefited from the increasing participation of 
       its aerospace industry in the global commercial aerospace 
       market and the supply chains of the world's leading 
       aerospace firms. This monograph assesses China's aerospace
       capabilities and the extent to which China's participation
       in commercial aerospace markets and supply chains is 
       contributing to the improvement of those capabilities. 
       Specific areas assessed include China's commercial 
       aviation manufacturing capabilities, its commercial and 
       military capabilities in space, efforts of the Chinese 
       government to encourage foreign participation in the 
       development of the aerospace industry, transfers of 
       foreign aerospace technology to China, the extent to which
       U.S. and other foreign aerospace firms are dependent on 
       supplies from China, and the implications of all of these 
       issues for U.S. security interests. The study should be of
       interest to business analysts, policymakers, lawmakers, 
       and anyone who wishes to learn about China's market for 
       commercial aviation, the capabilities of China's aerospace
       manufacturing industry, the role foreign aerospace firms 
       are playing in the development of China's aerospace 
       capabilities, and security implications for the United 
       States. This research was sponsored by the U.S-China 
       Economic and Security Review Commission, which was 
       established by Congress in 2000 to monitor and report on 
       the economic and national security dimensions of U.S. 
       trade and economic ties with the People's Republic of 
       China. This research was conducted within the 
       International Security and Defense Policy Center of the 
       RAND Corporation's National Security Research Division 
       (NSRD). NSRD conducts research and analysis on defense and
       national security topics for the U.S. and allied defense, 
       foreign policy, homeland security, and intelligence 
       communities and foundations and other nongovernmental 
       organizations that support defense and national security
