Three factors have contributed to China's defence industry reform. They are Deng Xiaoping's resolute will to push defense industry reform, overall reform toward market economy system and the military's consciousness for the need of the defence industry reform. As time has gone by, direction for China's defence industry reform was gradually defined, and that created and environment conducive for innovationa dn to adapt to the changin economic environment. Many measures have been adopted, and the core idea being a gradual increase in competition in the economic sector. The implication for the civil-military relationship is that there might exist a consensus in both civilian and military sectors with regard to defense industry reform.
