Qi Jianguo, chairman of the China Institute for International Strategic Studies (CIISS) and deputy chief of general staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), said on December 28, 2012 in Beijing that the current global strategic situation has entered a period of rapid development as evidenced by the major adjustments, namely apparent acceleration of the multiple polarization process, the force comparison between great powers, the strategic trend, the strategic focus of competition, the military deployment and the relation among great powers.

Qi Jianguo delivered a special-theme report at the CIISS Annual Meeting of 2012 on the very day by centering on the global strategic situation and China's national security environment. He said the major adjustments of the strategic situation worldwide not only provides a rare historical opportunity for China's development, but also brings many challenges to China's national security.

Huge changes trigger big adjustments, and new challenges call for a grand strategy. Facing the accelerating development and change of the strategic situation across the world and the increasingly complex national security environment, China should constantly deepen its strategic thinking, strengthen strategic planning and grasp the strategic initiative so as to timely achieve the strategic goals proposed during the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), Qi added.

Nearly 200 persons including senior veteran generals and senior veteran diplomats attended the annual meeting. The CIISS is a nationwide civilian academic organization specialized in the research of international strategic issues. It currently maintains academic exchange relations with more than 100 international strategic institutions in over 50 countries.
