Breakthroughs in regularity building, law and discipline observance, and military administrative reform are important contents identified by the Capital Military Party Committee and High Command to build the strong armed forces. Accordingly, the agencies and units continue strictly maintaining the daily and weekly orders and regimes, especially the break hours and days off.
