(ECNS) - The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) has launched a website www.weain.mil.cn on Sunday for the procurement of military equipment, according to people.cn.
The website will mainly publish new demands for military equipment on the first working days in January and July.
The website includes channels for policy and rules, product technology, equipment knowledge, and services. Users of the website are divided into three groups with different access permissions – visitor, registered user, and certified user.
The Chinese military has been pushing for reforms of military procurement as part of a larger government procurement reform effort.
The PLA reforms aim to introduce competition among suppliers and improve the overall quality of the military's equipment, sources from the PLA General Armament Department said.
The launch of this online platform will help accelerate the reform pace and break down the information barrier, an official said.
