Abstract: Since the early 1980s, the People's Republic of China (PRC) has been involved in a large-scale program of defense conversion to boost the civilian output of its ailing defense industries. However these conversion efforts have experienced problems due to a lack of access to foreign capital, technology, and expertise, as well as indigenous factors. In contrast to many of the PRC's other defense sectors, the shipbuilding industry has developed into an internationally competitive, highly diversified, and relatively profitable entity producing a wide range of civilian goods. In examining this anomaly, the article considers several possible reasons such as the industry's rapid conversion and export orientation, and highlights some potential spill-over effects on the PRC's naval modernization efforts.
