ABSTRACT
The article reports on the efforts by China to become a global leader in the area of nanotechnology through state-led programs and international collaborations. It was observed that China's explosive growth is associated with millions of low-wage factories. China is investing large sums in research and development (R&D) which resulted in its rise as an economic power. China and some countries believe that nanotechnology will provide the key to a $2.6 trillion market by 2014.
