The Chinese People’s Liberation Army of 2017

This year marks the 90th founding anniversary of the PLA. The last nine extraordinary decades record a history of the diligent march forward under the leadership of the CPC, a history of serving the people with the resolute and capability to win, a history of starting from scratches to overcome powerful opponents with modest strength, and a history worth cherishing and commemorating. The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is the armed forces of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the People’s Republic of China. The PLA consists of five professional service branches: the Ground Force, Navy, Air Force, Rocket Force, and the Strategic Support Force. The PLA is the world’s largest military force, with a strength of approximately 2,285,000 personnel, 0.18% of the country’s population. In September 2015, Xi Jinping, the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China and the commander-in-chief of the PLA, announced a reduction of the number of military personnel by 300,000. The PLA’s insignia consists of a roundel with a red star bearing the Chinese characters for Eight One, referring to the Nanchang uprising which began on August 1, 1927.China’s Ministry of National Defense released the video named “The Chinese People’s Liberation Army of 2017” to tell the story and the spirit of the army.
