Zhang said a reasonable and moderate rise in military

expenditure is to meet the need of safeguarding national security and facilitating military reform with Chinese characteristics.

“Starting in 2016, the increases in our defense budget have been sta

ying inside single digits each year, as opposed to double-digit rises in the five consecutive years be

fore that year,” the spokesman said. “Compared with other countries, our defense spending in 2018 accounted for

about 1.3 percent of our GDP for that year, while some developed nations maintained a 2-plus percent proportion.”

China raised its defense budget by 8.1 percent in the fiscal year of 2018.Escaping the stre
