BEIJING, July 31 (Xinhua) -- Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, Tuesday stressed resolute efforts to terminate all paid services provided by the armed forces.
Xi made the call while presiding over a group study session of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee on this issue.
Military's paid services generally refer to those provided by the armed forces such as kindergarten education, publishing services, and real estate rentals to the civilian sector.
The implementation allows no exception, discount or makeshift compromise, Xi said, noting that such work is a major decision made by the CPC Central Committee and the Central Military Commission aiming to strengthen and revitalize the armed forces as well as an important part in reforming national defense and the armed forces.
He also stressed that ending military paid services would create a sound environment for building a strong military in the new era.
