The report, delivered at the annual session of the National People's Congress, also reads "Governments at all levels should, as always, care about and support the strengthening of national defense and the army."

China will enhance the army's ability to respond to multiple security threats, with a focus on winning regional wars in the information age.

Other major tasks outlined in the report include accelerating the development of a modern military logistics system, intensifying research and development on national defense, and improving weapons and equipment.
