Ter­mi­na­tion of paid ser­vices in mil­i­tary sur­ren­dered

Fiji Sun - - World News - Xinhua

Bei­jing: The Cen­tral Mil­i­tary Com­mis­sion (CMC) has planned to grad­u­ally ter­mi­nate all paid ser­vices in the mil­i­tary in three years, ac­cord­ing to a CMC cir­cu­lar re­cently is­sued. Ac­cord­ing to the doc­u­ment, mil­i­tary units will no longer be al­lowed to launch new pro­grams or sign new con­tracts of paid ser­vices, and ex­pired con­tracts may not be ex­tended. The CMC also rolled out prin­ci­ples and mea­sures on the ter­mi­na­tion of mil­i­tary paid ser­vices, aim­ing to tackle prob­lems that may emerge as a re­sult of the move to phase out paid ser­vices.

The cir­cu­lar stressed that ter­mi­nat­ing all paid ser­vices was “an im­por­tant po­lit­i­cal task” in build­ing the armed forces, and urged units at all lev­els to fully im­ple­ment the de­ci­sion.

In late 2015, China ini­ti­ated a new round of mil­i­tary re­forms. Paid ser­vices were flagged to be re­moved, to re­duce cor­rup­tion in the army.
