China and Myanmar vow to enhance science and technology cooperation

China and Myanmar agreed on last Friday to enhance science and technological cooperation between the two countries.

Chinese Minister of Science and Technology Wan Gang (also as the Vice-Chairman of the CPPCC) and his Myanmar counterpart Dr. Ko Ko Oo signed minutes on enhancing science and technological exchange and cooperation after a meeting on 9 August in Yangon.

Wan said in September last year, China and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) launched a science and technological cooperation partnership plan. Having scored rapid development in the science and technological sector, China is willing to share its achievements with ASEAN countries including Myanmar. He hoped that China's achievements in science and technology could benefit peoples of China and Myanmar.

He expressed China's wishes to enhance cooperation with Myanmar through establishment of joint laboratory and remote-sensing satellite data sharing and service platform, inviting talented young Myanmar scientists to undergo short-term research and training in China. The establishment of China-ASEAN technology transfer center was also included.

Ko Ko Oo thanked China for the assistance provided to Myanmar in the technological field, saying that the assistance contributes not only to the rising of the level of Myanmar's technology and the socio-economic development but also to the enhancement of friendship between scientists and peoples of the two countries.

Following the meeting, the China Center for Resources Satellite Data Application (CRESDA) and Mandalay Technological University ( MTU) under respective ministries also signed a letter of intent on MTU's use of the data from the CBS-03 satellite in Myanmar.

Under the letter of intent, CRESDA will provide a set of Client Terminal hardware with software for MTU to access, download, use and distribute data from CBERS-03 satellite.

The two parties also agreed to carry out demonstration application projects in such fields as coastal zone management, water resources management, land use or land cover mapping, change detection analysis and agricultural management.
