Chinese President Hu Jintao, also chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), inspects the guard of honor on the aircraft carrier "Liaoning" at a naval base in Dalian, northeast China's Liaoning Province, Sept. 25, 2012. China's first aircraft carrier "Liaoning" was delivered and commissioned to the Navy of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Tuesday after years of refitting and sea trials.

China's first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, went into service yesterday. This is an important element in the comprehensive rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Besides improving the navy's combat capabilities in distant waters, an aircraft carrier can also bring other benefits. The commissioning of the aircraft carrier comes just in time.

China's navy is growing stronger. This process requires time. However, the Liaoning's appearance makes this process clearer. Indeed, the modernization of China's national defense still has a long way to go. But because of this achievement, we know that we have already made progress. We have confidence that we can continue to make similar achievements in the future.

A solid foundation for China's rise has been established. The world expects China to be a promising power in the 21st century.

Only by combining the Liaoning with China's rise can we better understand its strategic significance. With an aircraft carrier, China's development seems faster in the eyes of the world.
