Question: According to media reports, troops stationed at high altitudes can now order fresh food ingredients on an APP, and have them delivered to the high altitude areas directly from the mainland. Cloud you please brief us on more details?

Answer: The CMC Logistics Support Department, the PLA Army and relevant civilian departments have carried out pilot projects on centralized purchasing of non-staple food for troops stationed in Lhasa, Shigatse and other areas of Tibet, aiming to address the problem of fresh food supply for troops stationed at high altitudes.

Based on the reality of the troops at high altitudes, military and civilian units jointly developed an APP to cover more than 90 percent of the daily non-staple food needs of the service members. Officers and soldiers can choose a variety of non-staple food including fruits, vegetables, meat, and aquatic and dairy products by themselves. They only need to place orders and submit demands with one click, and then they can have fresh food ingredients delivered very soon. It is learned that this mode will be further expanded in the future to improve the quality and efficiency of support for frontline troops.

For a long time, border defense troops have guarded the border and defended the country faithfully. Their dedication to the country will never be forgotten, and their well-being always tugs at the heartstrings of the people.
