China’s Defense Minister Promotes Military-Civilian Integration

In an article in Qiushi, China’s Defense Minister, Liang Guolie, a member of Chinese Communist Party’s Central Military Commission, stated that the ultimate purpose of the military-civilian integration strategy is to develop the country’s prosperity and empower the military, both being the cornerstones of the rise of China. The military-civilian integration consists of four major tasks: 1. Establish and perfect scientific research & development (R&D) of military armaments; 2. Establish and perfect a mechanism to train and retain military talent; 3. Establish and perfect information sharing by leveraging civilian information technology; and 4. Establish and perfect the national defense mobility system, including the militia and reserves.
