Under the supervision of President Xi Jinping, the Central Military Commission ordered a complete overhaul of the command structure of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.

The aim is to transform the armed forces, which currently rely mainly on their heavy infantry, into a modern system integrating the navy, the air force, space and nuclear forces in the same operations.

This quite ambitious reform was approved by the Communist Party plenum, in order to prepare China for possibile attacks by the United States.
