This chapter focuses on the country's telecommunications equipment manufacturing industries, and assesses the way industrial policy shaped them. It considers both Chinese and foreign-invested companies, as well as state-owned and private domestic corporations. It includes case studies of several key companies — such as Alcatel Shanghai Bell, Huawei, and ZTE — to see how well they have satisfied domestic needs, whether the companies have achieved technological advances, and how competitive they are in the international marketplace. The chapter uses some of the more traditional tools of assessing industries, taking into account sales profits and losses, and the impact of China's WTO entry on industries that have been both shielded from international competition, and benefited from foreign direct investment. It concludes that, overall, the government played a significant and positive role in shaping the industrial sector.

Keywords:   equipment manufacturing, handset, Huawei, industrial policy, intellectual property rights, joint ventures, technology, technology transfer, WTO, ZTE
