On June 20, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Central Committee Secretary Xi Jinping hosted the first plenary meeting of Central Military and Civil Integration Development Committee. The mysterious Development Committee was established on January 22, 2017. It is the CCP’s high-level decision-making and coordination body for major issues of military and civilian integration and development. It is directly under the control of the CCP Politburo and Politburo Standing Committee. Xi Jinping heads the committee himself.

According to, military and civilian integration has the purpose of ensuring a powerful military nation. On the other hand, military and civilian integration also means reform, which will touch the interests of some people in the military enterprises. Therefore, military and civilian integration will face resistance from different groups having vested interests.
