The article focuses on the issues related to First Vice Premier Teng Hsiao-ping's second restoration to power in China in 1977. Hsiao-ping is considered as the most powerful individual in China. He is Second Vice Chairman of the Communist Party of China, ex-officio member of the five-man Standing Committee of the Party's Political Bureau. Under Hsiao-ping, foreign policy has become a major issue in the struggle between the regime and the dissidents. The radicals are opposed to the decision of the Chinese government to import Western technology and Western technicians for both civilian and military plants.
