BEIJING, April 25 (CGTN) -- China will further promote international space cooperation to make concrete contributions to the realization of sustainable development goals set by the United Nations, a senior official with the China National Space Administration (CNSA) said on Wednesday.
China is to build a new type of cooperative and win-win relationship with other space agencies and international organizations around the world to jointly enhance the role of space industries in facilitating sustainable development, said CNSA deputy director Wu Yanhua at the United Nations/China Forum on Space Solutions: Realizing the Sustainable Development Goals.
Committed to a better service for the countries along the Belt and Road Initiative, especially developing countries, China is constructing a space information corridor, and promoting the sharing of satellite resources, according to Wu.
Bringing into play the unique strength of satellites in supporting telemedicine, epidemic prevention and control, and distance education, social security services can be improved, said Wu.
