A ceremony in celebration of the 90th anniversary of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) held at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, capital of China on China's Army Day. President Xi Jinping, in the capacity of the Chairman of the Central Military Committee, lauded the PLA's achievements in its long and rich history.
The nine-decade history of the People's Liberation Army shows this is military force under the leadership of the Communist Party of China fighting for the nation's independence, rejuvenation and for the people's better life. For this grand goal, this people's army has shed their blood and sacrificed their lives. We should forever remember the hardly-earned precious historical experience and march forward toward a prosperous future.
Only a powerful military force can safeguard the nation's security and people's safety. Building world-class armed forces has become a prerequisite for China to secure a better life for its people and the great rejuvenation of the nation. President Xi Jinping's speech has mapped out the country's top-level design and strategic planning for the military upgrading that will make us more confident in rejuvenating our nation.
