Abstract: In contrast to the existing literature and models (which neglected the discussion on policy implementation when studying policy making), this study argues that Chinaa??s foreign economic policy making is not fragmented or decentralized in the way many scholars have argued. It is during the policy implementation process and the policy justification process that we can observe such a trend. The new perspective of a??Dynamic Authoritarianisma?? taken by this study illustrates that Chinese foreign economic policy making is still an authoritarian one with the decision-making power dominated by the central government. It is dynamic because local governments and academic scholars tend to play more roles in the policy implementation (a process of policy reformulation) and justification processes. The case study of the CAFTA has proved the validity of the dynamic and authoritarian nature of Chinaa??s foreign economic policy formulation and implementation processes.
