  YINCHUAN, March25 (ChinaMil) -- About 400 officers including the military officers, chiefs of staff and heads of training departments above the regiment level gathered in a troop unit on March 23 to attend a 5-day concentration training organized by the Lanzhou Military Area Command (MAC) of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA).

  The concentration training is designed to correct the shortcomings existing in the training of basic subjects in the troops which could be described as "incomplete, non-standard, inaccurate, unskillful".

  According to the Outline for Military Training and Evaluation of the PLA, the combat troop units should carry out training of basic subjects for five and a half months each year. "The level of basic training is directly related to the combat capability. Powerful combat capability is established on the solid basic training," Cao Yimin, commander of the 21th Combined Corps told PLA Daily. He joined the officers to take part in the concentration training.

  The leading officials of the Lanzhou MAC told PLA Daily that the concentration training is expected to help improve the level of the attendees in instructing and organizing basic training, so as to promote the overall improvement of the basic training level of all the units in the military area command.

  The instructors who will give lectures or on-site demonstrations include commanding officers of divisions, battalions and companies, as well as ordinary non-commissioned officers. Most of them come from the 21th Combined Corps of the PLA.

  All the trainees are required to participate in the concentration training as ordinary soldiers, regardless of their age and ranking.
