China aims to complete the construction of satellite systems for remote sensing, communications and navigation before 2020, a national plan showed Thursday.

The three satellite systems should be able to provide continuous and stable service, according to the plan for long-term development of civil space infrastructure posted on the website of the National Development and Reform Commission, the top economic planner.

In the next decade, China will gradually build civil space infrastructure featuring cutting-edge technology, independent development and control, reasonable distribution and global coverage, the plan said.

The three systems should meet demands for different industries and regions to support China's modernization drive, ensure national security and improve people's lives, it said.
