Edited and Translated by Han Shasha, People's Daily Online

China's Ministry of Defense held a monthly press conference on Oct. 26. At the conference, the spokesman Yang Yujun answered a question about reviewing the amendment to China’s military conscription law. Question and answer are as follows:

Reporter: Currently, winter recruitment has started. What problems in your eyes are outstanding in the recruitment? What measures will be taken to deal with these problems?

Yang Yujun: Military service laid a solid foundation for strengthening national defense and army building. Many provinces have issued some favorable recruitment policies to encourage and attract young people to serve in the army.

There has been great interest in the draft amendment of the military conscription law. China's military has featured compulsory service ever since the NPC passed the Military Service Law in 1984. And it was amended in the year of 1998 and 2009. With the rapid development of the society, China has made some changes in the military conscription system. The amendment to the military conscription law will further improve the military conscription system and promote better army building.
