Work under way on China's second aircraft carrier at Dalian yard
While the report did not specify the exact completion date, the new carrier is expected to be completed in 2018, based on the delivery date of Liaoning to the navy in September 2012.
It was the first confirmation by a senior official that China was building a second carrier, as well as the location and the timetable of its construction.
The South China Morning Post reported in November that China would build four medium carriers by 2020.
