The idea of China developing its own aircraft carrier has won the support of the majority of people in China, according to a poll conducted by the Global Times' Global poll center in May among some 1,166 people above the age of 18 in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Changsha, Chengdu, Xi'an and Shenyang.

The chief of the General Staff of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Chen Bingde has confirmed that China's first aircraft carrier is under construction. However, an official from the PLA also added that the carrier will not enter other nations' territories after it is completed, the Hong Kong Commercial Daily reported on Tuesday.
Chen told the newspaper in an exclusive interview, "The aircraft carrier is under construction now," and added that he would not respond to questions concerning the aircraft carrier "before it completes construction."
This is the first time the PLA has officially acknowledged the existence of a Chinese aircraft carrier, although military enthusiasts in the country and foreign media have been speculating about the country's first aircraft carrier for months.
