China’s New Foreign Policy Thrust of Soft Power: Implications for Third World Countries

This research examined China's "soft power" from several perspectives:

  1. broader context of economic growth in China and its search for oil and minerals across the globe as well as new markets for its product;
  2. political and economic strategies of China's new foreign policy thrust especially in the developing countries of the world;
  3. origin and elements of "soft power" from the late Deng Xiaoping's foreign policy axioms to China's need to secure access to large reserves of oil, natural gas, and mineral resources in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Latin America, and Africa; and
  4. various responses of advanced Western countries to China's forceful projection of "soft power."
