Chinese Defense Ministry To Launch Bilingual Website
China’s Ministry of National Defense will launch an official bilingual website on Aug. 1, Thursday’s China Daily reported.
“The launch of the MND website is a major step for the PLA to open up to the outside world,” said Senior Colonel Huang Xueping, deputy director-general of the ministry’s information office.
It marks the 82nd anniversary of the founding of the 2.3-million-strong People’s Liberation Army (PLA).
The site, in Chinese and in English, will operate on a trial base, Huang said.
He did not elaborate on the website’s contents, but web editors said the portal will “cover a large amount of information”, featuring both regular activities and background about the Chinese army, according to the newspaper.
