The Chinese military will hold a series of activities to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, according to a senior officer at the Central Military Commission.

However, there is no arrangement for a military parade, Major General Li Jun, assistant to the director of the CMC Political Work Department, said at a news conference on Tuesday.

The CPC was established in July 1921. Six years after its founding, the Party formed its own armed forces, which later became the People's Liberation Army.

Events marking the Party's centenary will include theoretical seminars, themed forums as well as a massive exhibition at the Military Museum of the Chinese People's Revolution, Li said, adding that books pertaining to the military's links with the Party will be published.

Exhibition sites such as the Chinese Navy Museum in Qingdao and the PLA Hong Kong Garrison's Exhibition Center will start receiving visitors soon.

The CMC will also confer awards to distinguished officers and soldiers who are Party members and outstanding Party organizations inside the armed forces. The military will also produce and release several movies to mark the centenary, Li noted.

All of the activities will display the military's love of the Party, the nation and the people, Li said.
