On July 22, 2014, more than 100 journalists from China and other countries were invited to visit the PLA Engineering Academy of Armored Forces for the first time.
The academy showcased highly qualified personnel and its focus on recruiting more educated soldiers, as well as reform efforts to modernize itself.
