China is getting stronger. It has the first aircraft carrier it built on its own. The new carrier weighs 50,000 tons. Navy officials broke a bottle of champagne over the carrier at a traditional ceremony. Workers began building the carrier in 2015. The Navy will test it at sea for three years. It will be ready to use in 2020.

A spokesperson was proud of the carrier. It shows China is a modern and strong country. The new carrier will protect China's borders, shipping and trade routes. A social media user said the carrier showed China's "technological power…and strength". China may build four more carriers, like the U.S. Navy carriers.
