China's Exports of Small Arms and Light Weapons China's Exports of Small Arms and Light Weapons
中国的小武器和轻武器出口

Mark Bromley, Mathieu Duchâtel and Paul Holtom

China is a leading exporter of small arms and lights weapons (SALW) and is a popular supplier among states looking for inexpensive or alternative sources of SALW. While China has stated its commitment to preventing the illicit trade in SALW and formally recognizes the destabilizing effect that SALW transfers can have, it is one of the least transparent arms exporters. This report is the first to comprehensively map Chinese policies and practices for controlling SALW transfers.
