With the development of China’s military modernization and the enhancement of its comprehensive national strength, U.S. and Japan advocate that “China’s military development is not transparent” and “China is a threat”. Therefore, argues Col. Tong Zhen, it is quite necessary to answer the following questions by exploring the recent developments of Chinese military transparency. What is the level of Chinese military development? What are the opportunities and challenges the Chinese military transparency is confronting? What are the proper approaches for the development of Chinese military transparency?
