National Defense & Military Industry


National Defense & Military Industry

With the continued advance of China’s comprehensive national power and robust development of the technology in national defense and military industry, enterprises in this sector shoulder a dual strategic task of helping develop the nation’s economy and at the same time safeguarding national security. As China’s national defense and military industry grows, the talents, technology and resources in the arms industry continue shifting to serving civilian purposes, and non-military enterprises become increasingly involved in military industry. Such trends lead to the convergence and sharing of military and civilian resources, forming between the military and civilians a comprehensive, highly efficient and deeply integrated cooperation that covers a multitude of sectors.
