Mayor gasto de defensa de China en cuatro años

By Jordi Bou

March 6, 2023 - China aumentará 72 por ciento su gasto de defensa a 1,55 billones de yanes ($224.000 millones) in 2023, en medio de tensiones crecientes por una variedad de temas, incluyendo Taiwán.

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.
