Wu Haitao expressed his welcome and gratitude to the participating support units, and indicated that “Belt and Road” BeiDou Application International Training Center was inaugurated today based on the 2021 China Association for Science and Technology Program of International Collaboration Platform for Science and Technology Organizations in Countries along the Belt and Road, and he especially thanked Department of Intentional Affairs, China Association for Science and Technology for its support for and trust in Aerospace Information Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Academic Exchange Center of China Satellite Navigation Office. The establishment of the Training Center is a new and useful exploration and practice of Academic Exchange Center of China Satellite Navigation Office in international training and cooperative research on satellite navigation technologies and applications, which will further promote training and talent cultivation in the applications of BDS-based navigation and positioning technologies overseas, help carry out international cooperation and exchanges related to BDS technologies and industry. The Aerospace Information Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Sciences will spare no effort to provide comprehensive support for the development of the Training Center and organize researchers and staff to complete the work. Mr. Wu hoped that the Training Center would establish a complete and standardized training system, improve the teaching and management level, exchange and cooperate for mutual benefits and win-win results, and become an important platform for BDS to deliver BDS technologies to countries along the Belt and Road and drive international exchanges and cooperation.

Xu Guanqun suggested that, as the main force to promote private foreign science and technology exchanges, China Association for Science and Technology attached great importance to scientific and technological cooperation and personnel exchanges with other countries in the world, in an effort to enhance mutual trust and promote the building of a scientific and technological community. In order to actively respond to the Belt and Road Initiative and effectively promote the “Belt and Road” science, technology and humanities exchanges to go deeper and more practical, China Association for Science and Technology launched the implementation of China Association for Science and Technology Program of International Collaboration Platform for Science and Technology Organizations in Countries along the Belt and Road in 2016. After nearly six years of operation, the Platform has supported 152 projects, created an important platform for international science and technology cooperation, built a bridge for people-to-people communication, understanding and tolerance, mutual learning and learning and cooperation and innovation, and jointly promoted exchanges and cooperation between China and other countries in the fields of science and technology, industry and economy. Mr. Xu hoped that BeiDou Application International Training Center would become one of the important international cooperation platforms in the field of satellite navigation in countries along the Belt and Road, and further promote applications of BDS in countries along the Belt and Road, bringing more convenience to the production and life of people from all over the world.

In the next step, Academic Exchange Center of China Satellite Navigation Office will take the “Belt and Road” BeiDou Application International Training Center as the basis to promote friendly cooperation with satellite navigation groups or institutions in countries or regions along the Belt and Road and actively conduct science and technology personnel trainings and international conferences and exchanges.

The event was attended by nearly 50 domestic and foreign guests, experts and related personnel, including Lu Xiaopeng, Deputy Director of Beijing International Science and Technology Exchange Center, Hao Weina, Director of Academic Exchange Center of China Satellite Navigation Office, Shen Jun, Deputy Director of International Cooperation Center of China Satellite Navigation Office, foreign students from Nepal, Rwanda, Pakistan, Congo, Spain and other countries, as well as technical representatives from enterprises and institutions.

It is reported that the 2021 International Workshop on BDS Technologies and Applications in the Belt and Road Countries  is organized by Academic Exchange Center of China Satellite Navigation Office and co-organized by Branch Compass (Beijing) Engineering Technology Co., Ltd, under the guidance of China Satellite Navigation Office and supported by Bureau of International Cooperation Bureau of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Department of International Affairs, China Association for Science and Technology, BeiDou International Exchange and Training Center and Aerospace Information Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences, which is the fourth consecutive BeiDou Application International Training Course organized by Academic Exchange Center of China Satellite Navigation Office with the support of national policies, aiming to provide trainings and talent cultivation in BDS-based navigation and positioning technology applications, carry out international cooperation and exchanges related to BDS technologies and industry, and promote BDS services worldwide. The training course lasts two weeks, and the 127 foreign participants are from 28 countries and regions, including Algeria, Pakistan, Indonesia, Mongolia, the Philippines, Rwanda, and Hungary. The training course will be provided both online and offline, featuring systematic lectures on BDS technologies and applications, research on leading high-tech BeiDou enterprises, and special activities of China cultural tour.

Currently, BeiDou-related products have been exported to more than 120 countries and regions, including more than 30 countries along the Belt and Road, providing services to more than 100 million users. BDS-based land surveying and mapping, precision agriculture, digital construction and smart ports have been successfully applied in ASEAN, South Asia, Eastern Europe, West Asia and Africa. BDS has narrowed the digital divide between developing countries and developed countries along the Belt and Road. Along with the new wave of information technology innovation, BDS has created conditions for developing countries to realize urban governance and improve people's lives with the help of new technologies such as smart cities and the Internet of Things.
