The officers and men of a regiment under the Jinan Military Area Command (MAC) of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) went abroad to carry out such missions as peacekeeping operations for eight times successively and wrapped up all of those missions. They competed against the officers and men from 19 countries and won 16 gold medals. The regiment dispatched 37 persons/times to study abroad and receive training and all of them achieved outstanding performance. The officers and men have won praises from international public opinions for their excellent qualities and style, becoming a "beautiful name card" that displays the PLA's image of a mighty and civilized force dedicated to peace.

Six soldiers of the regiment were transferred to the Chinese peacekeeping force in the Republic of South Sudan in mid-June 2012. Xie Shaosheng, political commissar of the regiment, told the reporters that the regiment has made its debut in the international arena since the year 1998 and has so far dispatched nearly 200 officers and men to go abroad to conduct such missions as overseas study and training, peacekeeping operation and disaster relief, and martial art competition.

In July 2009, eight officers and men of the regiment took part in the Anthropoid International Military Competition on behalf of the PLA for the first time and won the championships of eight subjects, ranking first among the participating teams in terms of total points.
