Chinese Defense Ministry To Launch Bilingual Website

From Xinhua:

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.
