Oil In China: From Self-reliance To Internationalization Hardback
by Lim Tai Wei
Part of the Series on Contemporary China series
This book examines the political and conceptual metamorphosis of China's oil industry from self-reliance to internationalization.
Through the empirical case study of Daqing, the premiere oilfield of the People's Republic of China (PRC) for most of the postwar period and a symbol of industrialization as well as self-reliance, key historical developmental concepts and events are analyzed.
Japan's role in stimulating the development of the China's oil industry will also be highlighted as the Japanese government and its business sectors emerged as a supplier of technology and equipment to the Chinese oil industry as well as China's first major oil customer in the early internationalization phase of the PRC's oil industry.
