China will transfer 60,000 military officers to civilian work in 2008, which is "still a tough task," announced the Ministry of Personnel.

A total of 337,000 officers of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) were transferred to civilian work over the past five years, including 256,000 demobilized from 2004 to 2006, a national personnel conference heard.

Minister of Personnel Yin Weimin said that local governments would set up special agencies to provide services and supervise and manage the transfer. More professional training programs should be organized to help demobilized soldiers adapt to their new life, Yin said.
