The event was organized by the China Satellite Navigation Office and the Arab Information and Communication Technologies Organization, the Chinese office said in a statement sent to China Daily.The statement said this is the first time such a center has been set up in another country for Chinas Beidou Navigation Satellite System, adding that the move will gear up the expansion of Beidou-based services in Arab nations.The center is jointly run by the Chinese office and the Arab organization, and is tasked with demonstrating, promoting and evaluating Beidous navigation and positioning services in Arab nations. It will also carry out research and training on Beidou, the statement said.It added that many representatives of Arab and African countries expressed “strong interest” in Beidou, noting that five Chinese experts would give a three-day training session starting on Wednesday at the center to more than 40 satellite navigation professionals from Arab nations.China and the League of Arab States held the First China-Arab States Beidou System Cooperation Forum in May in Shanghai. The two sides pledged to strengthen their communication and collaboration in satellite navigation and to bring Beidou-based services to Arab states to benefit social and economic development.Beidou is one of the four space-based navigation networks along with GPS from the United States, GLONASS from Russia and Galileo from the European Union.Since 2000, when the first Beidou satellite was placed into orbit, 33 satellites have been launched for the network. Beidou began providing positioning, navigation, timing and messaging services to civilian users in China and parts of the Asia-Pacific region in December 2012.China has planned to put 18 third-generation Beidou satellites into space before the end of 2018.According to plans from the China Satellite Navigation Office, the network will be made up of 35 satellites before the end of 2020 to give Beidou global coverage. Several now in orbit will be decommissioned by then.Currently, Beidou covers nearly 30 countries, including Pakistan, Egypt and Indonesia, the office said.var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Bianji, Hongyu)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9448483;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingChina’s Beidou navigation system to launch mobile app in MayNavigation satellites sent into Earth orbitBeidou navigation service to be standard in smartphonesSatellite network marks 5 years as guideChinese civil airliner equipped with Beidou navigation system completes test flightExpert says China’s self-developed Beidou system performs better than GPSChina to preload BeiDou for most motorcycles by 2018China developing atomic clock for Beidou systemChina developing atomic clock for Beidou systemBDS Precise Service System covers over 300 Chinese citiesWe RecommendFishermen build wall with 2,000 fish in Jilin
