(p.49) Chapter 3 Establishing Control
Chinese Capitalists in Japan's New Order

Parks M. Coble

University of California Press

This chapter examines Japan's effort to establish control in its occupied territories in China during the second phase of the Sino-Japanese War. It discusses the establishment of the North China Development Company (NCDC) and the Central China Development Company (CCDC), and suggests that the formation of these corporations and their numerous subsidiaries represented a sophisticated approach by the Japanese to exploit the resources of China. The chapter explains that the role of the Chinese in these corporations was limited and subordinate, and that it was only in the later part of the war that a true Sino-Japanese cooperation emerged.

Keywords:   Japan, occupied territories, China, Sino-Japanese War, NCDC, CCDC, Sino-Japanese cooperation
