CHINA-PLA: GRAND EVENT FOR 90TH ANNIVERSARY IN AUGUST

PLA Lieutenant General Rong Guiqing, Deputy Commander and Chief of Staff of the Western Theatre Command, said on March 15, 2017, that there would be massive celebrations for PLA Day. He said President Xi Jinping, who is also chairman of the Central Military Commission, was expected to inspect troops on PLA Day on August 1. “It will be an event, not merely a military parade,” said the General, comparing the planned parade to a troop inspection carried by late leader Deng Xiaoping in 1981.”
