الصين تعزز الإنفاق الدفاعي

By Jordi Bou

March 6, 2023 - سترفع الصين إنفاقها الدفاعي بنسبة 7.2 في المائة إلى 1.55 تريليون يوان (224 مليار دولار) في العام 2023، وسط توترات متزايدة مع الولايات المتحدة بشأن العديد من القضايا، بما في ذلك تايوان.

The national budget, announced at the National People's Congress (NPC), showed 1.55 trillion yuan ($224 billion) allocated to military spending.

China's publicly disclosed defence budget in 2023 is around one quarter of the proposed U.S. spending, but the Pentagon and global arms bodies believe Beijing under-reports the true figure.

Chinese President Xi Jinping is seeking to build a “world-class force” by 2027, a deadline that coincides with the 100th anniversary of the People’s Liberation Army.
