The article focuses on strategic development of Sinkiang, China. Transportation development in this vast border region of China is currently influencing the international politics of half of Asia. The growth of new industrial sites along this border involves a good deal more in this instance than merely building up population in a frontier zone. The placement of industries in Sinkiang is predicated upon the simultaneous development of national and local industries and must be in line with national planning requirements. From 1958 through the last quarter of 1959 the pace of industrialization in Sinkiang has markedly increased. It seems unlikely that during a period of capital scarcity the central government would continue to build basic industrial complexes close by the Russian border if Sino-Soviet tensions were considered to be assuming serious proportions. The industrial decentralization which is taking place in China and the Soviet Union is a basic requirement in the nuclear age and accords with expert American military thought.
