Wang served in the Nanjing Military Region for most of his career. In 2003, he was appointed as the Chief of the Shanghai Garrison. According to the Diplomat Wang was Commander of the 31st Group Army based in Fujian, between 2007 and 2010 (according to Wikipedia, “based on its training activities and positioning, the primary mission [of the 31st Army] is presumed to be the invasion of Taiwan). In 2010 Wang was appointed Chief of Beijing Military Region and in July 2013 promoted to become the Deputy Chief of People’s Liberation Army General Staff Department.
Professor Bo Zhiyue, writing in The Diplomat, names a number of other generals from the 31st Army among the leadership of the PLA, going on to say “It is probably by coincidence that the 31st Army is stationed in Fujian Province where Chairman Xi Jinping of the Central Military Commission worked for 17.5 years.” Professor Bo predicts: “both Wang Ning and Miao Hua will be awarded the rank of general in the near future and enter the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party as full members at the 19th Party Congress in 2017.”
