Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping on Wed­nes­day stressed ac­cel­er­at­ing the de­vel­op­ment of mod­ern mil­i­tary science, and build­ing high-level mil­i­tary re­search in­sti­tu­tions to sup­port the build­ing of a strong mil­i­tary in the new era.

Mr Xi, also gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) Cen­tral Com­mit­tee and chair­man of the Cen­tral Mil­i­tary Com­mis­sion, made the re­marks dur­ing an in­spec­tion of the Peo­ple’s Lib­er­a­tion Army Academy of Mil­i­tary Science.

Not­ing that mil­i­tary science was an im­por­tant force in guid­ing mil­i­tary prac­tices and spear­head­ing trans­for­ma­tions, Mr Xi said re­search should be com­bat-ori­ented, meet the needs of the armed forces and be for­ward-think­ing.

He also called for bet­ter in­te­gra­tion of mil­i­tary the­o­ries and tech­nolo­gies, re­search and prac­tices, as well as mil­i­tary and civil­ian uses.

“We must con­tinue to en­hance the po­lit­i­cal loy­alty of the armed forces, strengthen them through re­form and tech­nol­ogy, and run them in ac­cor­dance with law,” Mr Xi said.

Vis­it­ing the academy’s med­i­cal re­search in­sti­tute, Mr Xi said he was im­pressed by their achieve­ments.

When calling on sev­eral lead­ing mil­i­tary sci­en­tists at the academy, Mr Xi en­cour­aged them to make greater con­tri­bu­tion to the build­ing of a strong army. He in­structed au­thor­i­ties to re­spect and take good care of ex­perts and de­velop a team of high-level mil­i­tary re­searchers. Af­ter hear­ing a work re­port by the academy, Mr Xi made an im­por­tant speech, in which he said more im­por­tance should be at­tached to in­no­va­tions, calling for in­no­va­tions in mil­i­tary re­search, defence tech­nol­ogy and the or­gan­i­sa­tion model of mil­i­tary re­search.
