Our Dream

We were born in the 1990s
By then China had already risen [images of return of Hong Kong and Macao in 1997]
We have the same concerns
With bright dreams, we want to shine like the new century
For our dreams
We want to give our all
We want to grow be very strong

The Call of Duty

Seventy-one percent of this globe we depend upon is blue water
No matter which corner of the globe
Wherever there is blue water, we are there to protect the security of navigation
The ideology of the “One Belt and the One Road” [Note: President Xi Jinping’s new silk road concept for China’s economic development]
China’s oceanic and overseas interests are developing rapidly.
Our land is vast
But we will not yield a single inch of our frontiers to foreignersChina has 3 million square kilometers of ocean under its jurisdiction
Including 6700 islands with a surface area of over 500 square meters
The struggle over sea rights has not ended – we will not give up even the tiniest bit of our resources [pictures of oil rigs at sea]

The Honor Gene

Thousands of sea battles forged us
In very bloody combat
Hot blood and the smell of gunpowder
We kept working hard
We kept growing
The passionate efforts of youth
Forging in trials makes possible the breakthrough
We maintain combat readiness
We are prepared for war
What we really want is to grow together with you
Let’s all share together

Seeking the Blue Dream

We are stronger because you are stronger
Here with us, you will be able to reach your dreams
Here with us, we will let you demonstrate your extraordinary talents [sailor holding a child’s drawing “We are in the Navy too!”]
Here we us, we give you the chance to sprout wings

[Group with Chinese flags and smaller UK flags, banner written “Giving a Warm Send-Off to the Chinese Naval Expeditionary Force!”]
Here, the eyes of the entire world are open us!
This the Chinese Navy!
This is you with us – full of pride!
A strong motherland needs a strong navy
The Navy needs you.
Let’s together realize the dream of the great Chinese renaissance.

Title at end in calligraphy: Sail the four seas, brave and courageous
End title under PLA Navy emblem: We invite you to join the Chinese Navy
