U.S. Defense Contracts for China?
China teaming up with a U.S. manufacturer? That's right. The Chinese manufacturer of China's new stealth fighter has teamed up with a small no-name manufacturer in California in order to aid in the potential winning of U.S. defense contracts.
Any Chinese bids for this or another contract under discussion would be certain to meet intense political resistance and would appear to have very little chance of success given mounting U.S. concern about China's military power and long-term strategic goals, and the often-prohibitive opposition in the past to Chinese attempts to enter other strategic U.S. sectors, such as energy and telecommunication.
Looks like we need to add aerospace engineering to the long list of mounting U.S. concerns.
