Speaking at the China-ASEAN Cooperation and Development Forum of the Belt and Road Space Information Corridor in Nanning, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, recently, Wu Yanhua, deputy head of China National Space Administration, said the CNSA will further explore a technical, financial cooperation model suitable for the common development of China and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations members. He also said efforts will be made to establish a market-oriented, open and win-win satellite service network in which enterprises will play a pivotal role.
Also, China will promote high-quality, highly efficient and sustainable construction, cooperation and communication facilities, and share the collected information with ASEAN through the Belt and Road space information corridor.
The Nanning forum's theme was joint discussion, co-construction and space information sharing. And its aim is to promote the Belt and Road space information corridor among ASEAN member states.
China has more than 200 satellites in service and collects space information with the help of high-tech including big data, cloud computing and internet of things, which could benefit ASEAN member states and thus help build a China-ASEAN community of shared future.
There is a need to accelerate the construction of the Belt and Road space information corridor, Wu said, by using top-level design, interdepartmental cooperation mechanism and commercial space flights.
