The new military measures were published by the Headquarters of the General Staff, the General Political Department, the General Logistics Department and the General Armament Department, after approval by President Xi Jinping and the Central Military Commission.

The military is now required to buy its vehicles through a centralized purchasing system and choose Chinese brands that are made in the country.

The requirement to use Chinese vehicles will also help promote the development of Chinese companies. China has also today the technology and engineers to produce modern armoured vehicle.

China develops widely its defense industry, and companies as Norinco or Shaanxi Baoji Special Vehicles offer a full range of new armoured which are currently used by many armed forces all over the world.

"The use of national budget funds to buy Chinese brands will encourage more ordinary civilians and even the rich to buy domestic-made vehicles," said Yang Weidong, a professor at the Chinese Academy of Governance, adding that he hopes more government bodies will adopt similar policies.
