On 3 July 2015, Science and Technology Counsellors from EU Member States and the EU Delegation were invited to a visit of the “Space City” of the Chinese Academy of Space Technology (CAST) located in Haidian District, Beijing. The delegation was welcomed by Mr SHEN Bin, vice president of CAST international, and officials from the international cooperation department. The visit was a success in terms of understanding some of China’s most recent R&D achievements in space technology, such as the the Beidou satellite navigation system, and notifying potential projects for future EU-China cooperation.
