BEIJING — China has issued new rules to regulate the resettling of retired soldiers.
Soldiers’ military performance will be evaluated according to rules jointly published by the Ministry of Civil Affairs and the People’s Liberation Army’s Headquarters of the General Staff.
The rules aim to ensure those with longer service and greater contributions enjoy priority in post-service job assignments, said an official statement released on Oct 25.
Retired soldiers will be evaluated on their military performance, service in remote areas, professional skills, and other experience. Those who received punishment during service or falsify their records will be demoted in the rating, according to the rules.
