New reports reveal Chinese army to be the most modern military by 2020

China aims to complete the reform of its 2.3-million-strong army and have the most modern armed forces capable of ‘informationised warfare’ by 2020, laying a solid foundation for the PLA to become a world-class force, according to the new five-year military development plan.

In next five years, China’s armed forces will realise “a significant increase of key combat capabilities,” said the 13th five-year military development plan (2016-2020) issued by the Central Military Commission (CMC), the overall commanding authority of the People’s Liberation Army headed by President Xi Jinping.

By 2020, the PLA will have finished mechanisation of all forces and made important progress in incorporating information and computer-technology, the document said. The next five years will lay a solid foundation for the PLA to become a world-class military force, it said.
