General Fan and General Xu are both deputies to the 12th NPC.
The government work report has put forward new perspective for strengthening national defense and military development, therefore, the PLA and the Armed Police Force (APF) should make an overall planning in promoting the military construction, military reform and preparations for future wars, said Fan when joining a group of PLA deputies to the annual session of the national legislature on Saturday.
The PLA should make more efforts to strengthen real war-oriented military training to improve combat effectiveness, Fan stressed.
Fan urges the PLA to unswervingly keep the anti-corruption trend up, giving full play to anti-corruption institutions including disciplinary inspection organs and auditing offices.
As for the military construction programs in the 13th Five-Year Plan period, Fan suggested related units and departments should speed up the application and approval procedures, and make timely allocation of construction funds, so as to start the construction programs as soon as possible and ensure the down-to-earth implementation of decisions and deployments of the CMC.
The next five years are the extremely important years during the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, as well as the key period for the development of national defense and military construction, Xu pointed out in a group deliberation of deputies from the PLA on the first day of the NPC annual session.
