General Ding Henggao
Commission of Science, Technology and Industry
  for National Defense
People's Republic of China

Dear General Ding:

On behalf of the United States Department of Defense, I extend
my regards to the officers and soldiers of the People's
Liberation Army's Commission on Science, Technology and Industry
for National Defense on the 46th Anniversary of the founding of
the People's Republic of China.

Advancing the military relationship between our two nations
remains an objective which we agree serves the long-term
interests of peace and stability the Asia-Pacific Region.  In
this regard, I am hopeful in the months ahead we will move
forward in the important area of defense conversion cooperation.
We have already made significant progress on our Sino-American
Joint Defense Conversion Commission work plan.  I believe we
must now concentrate on sustaining the momentum achieved to
date.  

Let me briefly review the status of our Joint Commission's
projects.  As you know, together with the United States
Department of Commerce, we have published the China Defense
Industry Directory and U.S. Industry Directory.

In the area of air traffic control, we have accomplished Step 5
of the Eight-Point Air Traffic Control Initiative, and are
prepared to carry out Step 6 by sending a delegation to China at
any mutually agreed upon time in the future.  Upon completion of
Step 6, we would welcome a combined civil-military air traffic
control delegation from China to the United States which will
mark Step 7 of the Eight Point Plan.

We have also responded positively to your list of 49 defense
conversion projects for potential cooperation with U.S.
industry.  Beyond publication of the China Defense Industry
Directory, we are making arrangement for the visit of a
delegation of Chinese Defense managers to the United States in
the near future.  This group will be hosted by the Department of
Dfense and Commerce, as well as by U.S. industries.  At the same
time, we are exploring the possiblity of providing assistance in
facilitating intern program for defense conversion specialists.

Lastly, there are arrangements being made by our Department of
Commerce and your Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic
Cooperation to include defense conversion as a topic for
discussion at the upcoming Joint Committee on Commerce and Trade
(JCCT) meeting in Beijing next month.  From my perspective, it
will be very useful to establish informal linkage between the
Joing Defense Conversion Commission and the JCTT since on our
side the Department of Commerce plays such an active role in
bilateral defense conversion activities.  Your support would be
most appreciated in pursuing this initiative.

Clearly, while much has been accomplished, we must renew our
efforts if the objectives we established at our Joint Defense
Conversion Commission's First Plenary Session in Beijing last
October are to be accomplished.  I suggest that both sides
carefully examine the various ongoing Joint Defense Conversion
Commission projects and work together to achieve concrete
results.  At the point we have achieved sufficient progress, I
propose we explore the possibility of convening the Joint
Defense Conversion Commission Second Plenary Session in
Washington, D.C., hopefully at some time in the coming year.

Let me close by again conveying my respects to you on your
National Day, and by reiterating my support for our bilateral
military relationship, in which defense conversion plays a
prominent role.  I hope to see you again at the earliest
opportunity.  

                  Sincerely,
