The military strategy of China is now informationwarfare centered

"Xi Jinping, head of the Chinese Communist Party, is calling on China’s military to focus on innovation and information warfare. He declared the world is seeing a “new military revolution.”

 

“We should cast off the paradigm of mechanized warfare and embrace an approach to war featuring information technology,” Xi said, during a meeting of the Political Bureau of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Central Committee.

 

Xi gave his speech on Friday. His statements were reported by China’s state-run news agency Xinhua on Sunday.
