China will always abide by international space law and is making great efforts to introduce its own laws in 2020, the China National Space Administration (CNSA) said on Monday.
Xu Dazhe, director of the CNSA, said the country has already made policies and regulations in the administration of civil space launch, registration of space objects and reduction and prevention of space debris, at the 2014 Workshop on Space Law.
"National space law has been listed in the national legislation plan, and the CNSA is drafting the law," said Tian Yulong, secretary-general of the CNSA.
Simonetta Di Pippo, director of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UN-OOSA) said the workshop will help each country abide by the international space law, make better use of outer space and maintain space safety.
She said that the workshop will cover the developments in space law and policy, space law and commercial space activities, promoting national space legislation and space capacity and information.
Attended by experts from more than 30 countries and international organizations, the workshop is co-organized by the UN-OOSA, the CNSA and the Asia-Pacific Space Cooperation Organization.
China has made rapid development in space exploration and now rushing to establish basic infrastructure in outer space, including remote sensing, communication and navigation.
