Abstract:

The Peoples Liberation Army of China has been directed by President Hu Jintao to submit its construction and training plans, as well as materiel transfer, weapon purchases, repair, and disposal to local authorities for approval regarding environmental impacts. The President also issued new regulations that specify assessment procedures and penalties for infractions. Construction of military bases, ports, logistics centers and exercise fields is to be approved only after the project passes environmental evaluation, including approval by local environment authorities.
