Congressional interest has been escalating in China's economic future and its implications for commercial, economic, and foreign policy interests of the United States. The legislative agenda for 1997 will include an increasing number of legislative and policy concerns related to United States-China relations. Chinese leaders in turn, are developing closer ties with the United States, including leaders of the U.S. Congress. With these words John P. Hardt and Robert N. Mottice introduce the latest Joint Economic Committee volume on the Chinese economy. With 1997 predicted to be the year of China on Capitol Hill, this latest JEC volume could not come at a more opportune time. Given the current state of U.S.-China relations and Hong Kong's accession in 1997 the study will provide the U.S. Congress and other interested parties a useful tool in guiding foreign and economic policy toward China. Congressional Research Service has provided us with an informative, comprehensive and focussed study at an important time in the history of U.S.-China relations --Letter of Transmittal from Chairman Connie Mack
