外文标题：China to develop more aircraft carriers
BEIJING: Buoyed by successful trials of its first aircraft carrier, China plans to build more new carriers as it looks to spread out its global naval presence in the midst of maritime disputes with a host of neighbours.
China is planning to build more aircraft carriers in addition to the two-year-old Liaoning, which it purchased from Ukraine and commissioned in 2012, state-run Global Times reported on Monday.
Although Chinese authorities have never openly confirmed whether a homemade carrier is underway, they have also never denied it.
Ministry of national defense spokesman Yang Yujun said last August that although the Liaoning is China's first aircraft carrier, "there will surely be more in future."
He said China will consider the development of aircraft carriers in accordance with its national defence needs.

Besides having more aircraft carriers India should also focus on having more submarines that can indirectly counter the Chinese aircraft carrier that
India is ahead in Carrier Race. India must stay ahead. India has 2 aircraft carriers, China has one. If China is building three more, India should build 6 more.
Lol China has one carrier and that too build buy Russia ,China needs 20 more years to build its own unless Russia give its own technology. Looks like arms and military technology Have flow pattern that's start from Russia ~>China ~> northkorea and Pakistan ~>Iran and God only knows where Iran sell these technology.
We should not compete with China in quantity but in quality
China's Defence budget is $115 B known secret funds are different , India's $ 36 B, we are trying to catch up in many ways. but the funniest part is even we are not using allotted fund and getting the things done within the time which needs to set right.

China's territorial waters may be less but their navy has more geographical reach and is one of the blue Water Navies.
