Building a strong navy


The PLA Navy must thoroughly implement the CPC's thought on building a strong army in the new era, uphold political integrity, reform and the rule of law, and unwaveringly accelerate the modernization of the navy, Xi said.



He called on the navy to promote scientific and technological innovation, accelerate the development of new types of combat forces, and strive to build a modern maritime combat system in an effort to enhance the ability to conduct diversified military missions.
