CSNC has been successfully held for eleven years with fruitful academic results, and has gradually developed into the largest, most comprehensive, highest-level and most representative academic exchange conference in the field of satellite navigation in China.The “BeiDou Industrial Park Development Forum” is of great strategic significance as a permanent topic in the high-end forum section of CSNC. This year's H02 Beidou Industrial Park Development Forum aims to actively explore the goals, thoughts and modes related to the new round of high-quality development of Beidou Industrial Park and its coupling relationships with the construction of BeiDou application industry innovation platform, and accelerate the construction of a new pattern of high-quality development of BeiDou Industrial Park.
Wu Haitao, Secretary General of the Organizing Committee of CSNC, came onsite to deliver opening remarks for the Forum. Mr. Wu spoke highly of the far-reaching impact of the Forum on the new round of high-quality development of Beidou Industrial Park, and gave affirmation and encouragement to the Beidou West Hongqiao model. Mr. Wu hoped that by building this platform for academic exchanges, promotion and display in the field of satellite navigation, we could deeply exchange construction experience, openly share innovation results, promote classic examples of mutual appreciation, and actively develop new situations and new industries. We hope that by building this academic exchange platform, promotion platform and exhibition platform, we can deeply exchange construction experience, open and share innovation results, promote and share with each other classic examples, and actively explore new situation, new focus and new industry in the new round of high-quality development of Beidou Industrial Park.

Subsequently, Qu Xiaohua, Director of Civil-Military Integration Development Commission Office of Jiangxi Provincial CPC, expressed sincere welcome to the guests who attended the Forum on behalf of CPC Jiangxi Provincial Committee and Jiangxi Provincial Government. As the political and economic center of Jiangxi Province, Nanchang is honored to be the host of this year's China Satellite Navigation Conference. The meeting for the “device of great national strategic importance” in the City of Heroes signifies that Nanchang has officially sounded the rallying cry for the development of BeiDou in the new era, and also provides the opportunity to discuss together cooperation and seek common development with BeiDou industrial parks around the world.
Deputy Director Qu Xiaohua delivering messages at the Forum
The year 2021 is the opening year of the 14th Five-Year Plan period for national economic and social development, the year when China enters a new stage of development and starts a new journey, the year that marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of CPC, and the beginning of the comprehensive development of BDS new spatio-temporal application services after the completion of the global deployment of BDS-3 network. China's satellite navigation and location-based service industry has ushered in a golden development period. At the same time, the development of BeiDou Industrial Park will also face a new strategic opportunity.
A hundred years of journey, a hundred years of sticking to original intentions and greater determination. Looking up at the starry sky, and BeiDou will be seen shining brightly. As Yang Changfeng, Chief Designer of Beidou Navigation Satellite System, said in his speech at the opening ceremony of CSNC “the eternal topic of mankind is to run in cycles and never fails through the ages, and in space and time”. To this end, the Forum focused on the core them of “integration & innovation and characteristic development”, and set up two special seminars on “High-quality Development Mode of BeiDou Industrial Park” and “Industry Innovation Platform for Characteristic Applications of BeiDou Industrial Park”.
Prof. Yu Wenxian introducing the main lines of communication of the Forum
In the first half of the Forum “High-quality Development Mode of BeiDou Industrial Park”, Li Donghang, Director of Beijing Satellite Navigation Productivity Promotion Center, Hu Bin, President of Changsha Beidou Industrial Safety and Technology Research Institute, Xu Mingliang, Senior Engineer of Beijing Future Navigation Technology Co., Ltd and Kong Ji, General Manager of Shanghai Wenxian Technology Development Co., Ltd delivered in-depth presentations. By focusing on “BDS spatio-temporal information technology”, the presenters discussed the construction of “innovative industry chain and innovative service chain” and the consolidation of the core competitiveness of BeiDou Industrial Park, so as to provide source innovation capacity for a new round of high-quality industrial accumulation and characteristic cluster development.

During the 14th Five-Year Plan period, the CPC Central Committee gave clear instructions on the industrialization of BDS industrial applications: breakthroughs should be made in the integration of communication and navigation technologies, and an industry innovation platform for BDS applications should be built. According to the important instructions of General Secretary Xi that the application of BDS should be “scaled up, industrialized and internationalized”. BeiDou is now moving to a new stage of comprehensive spatio-temporal system development. Through the Forum, let's get togehter, make concerted efforts and celebrate BDS's 100th birthday and welcome the arrival of a new spatio-temporal service era with Chinese characteristics and leading global development.
