The Global Integration of China’s High-Tech Industries: Variation in Transnational Integration across the Aircraft and Space Technology Sectors

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Why are some technology sectors transnationally integrated while others are sites of intense international competition? This paper explores this question through a comparison of relations between China and the United States in two civil high-technology sectors: the space and aircraft sectors. These sectors share features that should make them equally likely sites for either transnational integration or interstate competition. Yet relations between China and the United States in these two sectors follow strikingly different trajectories. The two countries’ industries are rapidly integrating their activities in the aircraft sector. By contrast, in the space sector, their industries and programs are not integrating and the two countries may even be engaged in an incipient technology race. These divergent outcomes are traceable to different ways of representing technologies in each sector. Distinct sectoral cultures shape how participants in the aircraft and space sectors conceive of technologies, of human-machine relations and of technology’s impact on society. These different understandings allow participants to construct technology transfers as benign and manageable in the aircraft sector, but as threatening and likely to elude national control in the space sector. Research in China and the U.S. using methods from technology studies supports this conclusion.
