stealth jets are 5th generation.

TACTICAL reasons - disable the potency of AAM, SAM missiles!
This will allow such jets to SHOOT FIRST, apparently the airframe design makes it weak in d-og fights.
The other reason, is stealth bombing mission , with high survival rates!

cheerios!

China has advantage over many other states in Asia!

First, it is a large continental size state, 3x the size of India!
Second, it already going to have 500 million air passenger market by 2015!
This means China needs for aircrafts of all types will be large- it can afford to have a big aircraft production, and even accept up to 3 to 1 loss ratio when face with stronger technological rivals!

It makes it cheap to build jets, engines etc.
Chinese culture means FRIENDLY interaction with the world's myriad of states!

Protection of sealanes will depend more and more on AIR POWER!
and China has the base for both sea and air power!
However, it does seem air power is far cheaper, and it also shows China has no "intention to expand territory", as AIR BASES need consent of harbouring state - besides it needs to show "Rivals" of it's capability to defend it's economic interest!

It's pretty rational and obvious!

cheerios!
