Private Firms Begin Military Production in China

Private Firms Begin Military Production in China 19 November, 2020

China carried out drills to test civilian mobilization and equipment demand during combat. Civilian factories were put into military production at the event.

Private firms, which received demand for large platform trailers as part of the exercise in southwest China, initiated national defence mobilization protocols, putting together a large number of transport equipment and personnel.

China's war-time industrial potential has been tested, analysts said. In addition, civilian manufacturing firms began working for the production of combat vehicles in the exercise.

More than 80% of the solutions developed by private firms can be used for military purposes, according to foreign data.

Military-civilian mobilization is thought to be useful in non-combat military operations such as disaster relief.
