The China-ASEAN Information Harbor Satellite Application Industry Cooperation Forum was held in Nanning on the afternoon of September 11. With the theme of “Satellite and Space Interconnection, Innovation and Win-Win”, the forum focuses on key topics such as technological innovation, integrated applications, and industrial development including satcom and Beidou navigation. At the forum, the development status of the Beidou industry, and the integrated application and development plan of Guangxi Beidou were highlighted, and the agreements on Sino-foreign cooperation were inked.
The Beidou industry needs integration and development. Zeng Yi, the head of China Beidou System Application Expert Group and a member of the Party Group and Deputy General Manager of China North Industries Group Corporation Limited, holds that China’s Beidou industry has reached a period of industrial integration. It calls for exchanges from all sides to give full play to the industrial guiding role and promote industrial development. Jing Guifei, the Dean of Beidou Silk Road College, Beihang University, also expressed that we have to engage in hardware and an industrial chain to boost new industrial space. At the same time, he also put forward the initiative to establish China-ASEAN Satellite Industry Cooperation Think Tank Alliance and launched it in concert with other members.
Beidou system has broad prospects for research and development and application. At present, China’s Beidou system has entered a new stage of global networking. At the end of this year, the Beidou system will complete the networking launch of 19 satellites. By 2020, a world-class global satellite navigation system will have been built. Beidou products have been exported to over 70 countries or regions, including more than 30 countries or regions along the Belt and Road.
Some Beidou application projects have formed Guangxi characteristics. Guangxi is situated at an important node and key area at the intersection of the Belt and Road and is the frontier and window of China’s open cooperation with ASEAN. Guangxi sets great store by the application and industrial development of Beidou. Guangxi Beidou Integrated Application Demonstration Project undertaken by the autonomous region is a major special civil demonstration project of the second-generation satellite navigation system in China. At present, it has achieved application and promotion with Guangxi characteristics in such fields as smart sugar industry, Xijiang water transportation, cross-border vehicle and boat management as well as fine urban management, which is conducive to the better industrial efficiency. It proposes to promote 100,000 sets of Beidou terminals, and plans to carry out China-ASEAN cooperation in satellite application industry, and build Nanning and other cities into satellite application industry clusters geared to ASEAN countries, demonstration zones for innovative applications, and the transfer center for promoting satellite technology applications.
At the meeting, the signing ceremonies for such projects as China-Cambodia Satellite Navigation Application Project, the China-Thai Taxi Management Cooperation Project, and the Settlement of Enterprises in China-ASEAN Space Information Technology Innovation Demonstration Base were held. North Industries Laser Research Institute released the “Beidou + Industry Application” comprehensive service platform.
This forum is a sub-forum of the 3rd China-ASEAN Information Harbor Forum, and one of the high-level forums under the 15th China-ASEAN Expo and the China-ASEAN Business and Investment Summit. It is of great significance for promoting China-ASEAN information interconnection, accelerating the construction of China-ASEAN Information Harbor, creating an information hub for the Maritime Silk Road, and shaping Beidou as a shining business card in the ASEAN and global arena.
