China’s military to recruit more civilian personnel
BEIJING: China will recruit more civilian personnel for jobs in the PLA, the world’s largest standing army, and the Chinese People’s Armed Police.
The spouses and offspring of military personnel who have fallen in the line of duty, and the spouses of those still in service will be eligible to apply to certain posts.
More positions will be made available for candidates with relevant work experience.
It is hoped that the drive will improve recruitment in remote areas and unpopular positions, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
The announcement follows a recent decision by the government to lay off 300,000 troops by 2017 to further slim down the 2.3 million-strong People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

Sometime back there was a Report that it is going to reduce the strength of the
Army from 2.3 mio to 2 mio.
Now what does this mean?
Recruit all they want. Indians always believe one Indian Jawan is worthy more than 200 Chinese soldiers.
Blackies are shivering scared of Chinese army
World’s strongest army
Good to reduce unemploymnet . An idle brain is one of the most dangerous things in the world.
They have to give job to the unemployed youth and they are now increasing their mighty strength to go one above U.S. military power. That’s the reason they recruit more and more !
