Markets or Mercantilism? How China Secures Its Energy Supplies
China takes a variety of measures to protect its access to energy supplies, particularly oil: controlling suppliers; diversifying suppliers, refining capabilities, and transportation routes; developing a strategic petroleum reserve; and securing energy imports.
