changes in international and domestic situation has clearly told us: soldiers and civilians converged development has become a global trend. During the two sessions, representatives of civil-military integration has become an important topic of concern to members. To this end, the use of two reporter a break on the international financial crisis in the context of civil-military integration of the army special interview with CPPCC members, the National Defense University Strategic Research Department, former deputy director Professor Jin Yinan.
Reporter: The two on defense spending is everyone’s concern, and now after the financial crisis raised the topic. The idea that, in this context, to promote civil-military integration is to strengthen national defense and army building, an important element.
Jin Yinan: this year’s two sessions, and this is felt deep. We currently are in the post-crisis period, regardless of what you do, should promote efficiency and quality to make money out of, do more with less. From national defense and army building is concerned, is spent the money later, to achieve improved combat effectiveness. Now, our defense spending growth slowing down, and we face a variety of security threats, but also to carry out diversified military tasks. In such circumstances, how limited funds to meet the needs of military construction, how to improve the combat effectiveness are urgent research issues.
Reporters: to promote civil-military integration, including the strengthening of military personnel, technology, resource sharing, and so on. Doing so, you can spend less, work more effectively to improve the effectiveness of national defense and army building.
Jin Yinan: this means. For example, our high-speed rail projects are not defense spending, it is the highlight of the local economic development. But after the success of the laying of high-speed rail, the train’s speed, not only greatly facilitate the passengers, but also to facilitate the remote mobile units to facilitate the troops carry out various tasks. The first two years of fighting snow and ice storms, earthquake relief, we are using local construction and development results, with the local scientific and technological achievements. As another example, relying on local public education, we absorb a lot of highly educated people, reducing the pressure of military science and education, and so on. So, civil-military integration is not expedient, it is a new development ideas. According to this idea, the military can remove some unnecessary burden, there is no need to kindergarten children to their families from jobs, to the placement of retired cadres are pipe up. We used to say that the army is large and the small and complete social, civil-military integration with the development of this direction is not consistent. Solve this problem, the construction can be more combat troops to a new level. As it is better for the party and the people gave the task.
Reporter: As a result, will inevitably bring many changes, including change of thinking, the concept of change, behavior changes, and so on.
Jin Yinan: civil-military integration to accelerate the development of national defense and armed forces, promote military reform with Chinese characteristics, the process has an important significance. Implementation of civil-military integration, to let the place assumed by the local commitment to sharing local resources on the sharing of local resources. In this way, you can concentrate on the military training and operations, improve the military response to a variety of security threats and accomplish diverse military tasks. From this perspective, the task we face today, not just the issue of civil-military integration, then go along this road, it ultimately requires a military revolution. Including the construction of ideas, implementation methods, etc., have to do a great adjustment. This revolution in military affairs, will be the traditional concept of a fundamental evolution of the military.
Reporters: civil-military integration, the military and should be a win-win strategy.
Jin Yinan: There is no doubt about it. Forces to concentrate their efforts on the military and national defense for the motherland and the people to provide a safe environment, so that people can be obsessed with construction. Meanwhile, the army’s many achievements can be for local use, and to promote local economic development, which has long been an indisputable fact.
