China North Industries Corporation - Working Paper 2. April 2017.
The International Peace Information Service (IPIS) and the Omega Research Foundation (Omega) have undertaken a comprehensive review of one of China’s largest state-owned companies.
Our previous Working Paper (October 2014) focussed on the structure of China North Industries Group Corporate, listing its Member Units and the associated subsidiaries, joint ventures and associate companies. In this paper we focus our attention upon one Member Unit, namely China North Industries Corporation (Norinco). Based upon publicly available sources we try to unravel its many subsidiaries, joint ventures, activities, etc. We believe that this information shows the complex interaction between the civilian and military sections, with supposedly civilian enterprises manufacturing equipment or components for the military, or providing them with raw materials. We hope this will make policy makers and export control departments more aware of the issue of exporting equipment and technology to China.
The lists are still incomplete and we would welcome any additions or clarifications you may have.
