The two-week-long company-level Hand-in-Hand 2019 exercise will take place in the 2nd half of December. Led by Major General Li Shizhong and Senior Col Wang Weijun from the Tibet Military command, the exercise is planned at the company-level with respective battalion headquarters controlling the training, the officials said.

Hand-in-Hand joint military Exercise was 1st started in 2007 in Kunming but was halted after Chinese troops came to Belgaum in Karnataka for 2nd edition of the exercise.
