The CDS is subordinated to the National Defence University (NDU) of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (CPLA) which is the highest institution of military learning in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). It is mainly tasked to provide education to senior commanding, staff and research officers as well as senior officials of foreign countries. Besides, in some courses, Chinese officers of the same rank are recruited to train and exchange views on defense and security issues together with foreign officers.
The CDS always works for exchanges and cooperation in the fields of international military education, and carries out deep-going study of the frontier theories on defence and security. We pursue the concept of “seeking cooperation, striving for peace and promoting development” and make unswerving efforts to promote friendly relations and pragmatic cooperation between countries and armed forces.
