Description

A widely known truism is that "there are three kinds of falsehoods, lies, damned lies and statistics." In that spectrum, where does the available information on the Chinese defense budget fall? At best—the Chinese Communist Party provides incomplete data,—and at worst—misleading or false information on the size and composition of their defense budget to the world.

When concern is at an all-time high regarding potential Chinese aggression, it is critically important to come to a better understanding of what Beijing spends on its military. Join Heritage and a distinguished group of experts on the Chinese defense budget to get a better sense of what is currently known about the Chinese defense budget and what needs to be further studied and explored.
