Xinhua News Agency Dalian Branch on Apr.26, the launching ceremony for Chinas second aircraft carrier was held at DSIC under CSIC, where the member of the Political Bureau of CPC Central Committee and Central Military Commission Deputy Chairman Fang Changlong attended the ceremony and delivered a speech.

At about 9 oclock, the ceremony was commenced with majestic national anthem. Based on international practice, a champagne-cast ceremony was conducted after ribbon cutting, with a bottle of Champagne broken into pieces on the bow, and flowery ribbons sprayed from both sides of aircraft carrier, ships around ringing whistles together, and the whole audience applauded warmly. The aircraft carrier towed by tugs was undocking slowly to anchor along the pier.
