Xi Jinping, who is also the chairman of the Central Military Commission said the army is under the absolute leadership of the Communist Party of China, and the principle should always be firmly upheld. He also vowed to tighten the management of high-ranking and middle-level officers in the army, saying that their assessment and promotion will focus on their ability to lead soldiers to fight and win battles.

Talking about the fight against corruption, Xi Jinping pledged to continue the anti-graft crackdown in the military. Xi Jinping also called for serious reflection on the discipline and legal violations committed by former Central Military Commission Vice Chairman Xu Caihou. Xu was found to have taken advantage of his position to assist in the promotion of others in exchange for bribes.
