Chapter Summary

The Bureau of Industry and Commerce (BIC) was an agency to which Xue Muqiao attributed the Shandong CCP's success in accessing the enemy's resources. This agency, which was created on September 10, 1943, was intended to make up the organizational deficiencies in the Shandong Bureau's agencies in financial and economic affairs and to conduct economic offensives into the Japanese controlled zones. Its mission included minimizing imports and maximizing exports by coordinating policies and regulations in finance, production and trade. The BIC's establishment was a reflection of Shandong's highly commercialized rural economy and Xue's empirical mercantilist approach. To the Shandong Bureau, the approaching collapse of Japan's overseas empire meant that preparing for a strong post-war bargaining position against the GMD became their top priority.
