Chapter Summary

The Manchuria discussed in this chapter is Manchoukuo, whose area and population are larger than the area and population of the Manchuria in the frontiers of 1931. About sixty-five per cent of Manchuria's population is farmers working under conditions typical of China's agrarian population: small farms. The weak spot in the industrialization of Manchuria is the paucity of native skilled workers, technicians, engineers. If all children in Manchuria were covered by the educational system, the number of students in primary schools would exceed six million. The physical facilities for further industrialization in Manchuria are available; and the work can be resumed, where the Japanese have left it. Thus, even without financial assistance from Japan or from other country, Manchuria can continue its program of industrialization. The collapse of the Japanese rule in Manchuria was sudden; industry, communications, agriculture may be short of liquid capital, but otherwise are in good shape.
