A New Look at China's Military

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

China has the greatest potential to compete militarily with the United States and field disruptive military technologies that could over time offset traditional U.S. military advantages.

- The 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review

China's military expansion is such as to alter regional military balances. Long-term trends in China's strategic nuclear forces modernization, land- and sea-based access denial capabilities, and emerging precision-strike weapons have the potential to pose credible threats to modern militaries operating in the region.
- Military Power of the People's Republic of China, 2006

Join us as our distinguished guests discuss the Pentagon's 2006 report on the People's Liberation Army and what it means for America and for the region.
