The military needs more highly educated officers, the People's Liberation Army Daily reported in a front-page commentary. The PLA must recruit more 'high-quality' officers because of the need to improve its defence capacity, it said, adding that well-educated officers were the backbone of modern warfare, which focused on technology and knowledge. The paper called on PLA officers to learn about advanced technology and improve their skills through hard work and training.
