A third stop on the China visit was the China International Nuclear Fusion Energy Program Execution Center (ITER China). Since China joined the ITER Project in 2003, the Chinese Domestic Agency has managed Chinese commitments to the project, as well as promote domestic nuclear fusion energy research and development and advance multilateral cooperation. During a working meeting, the parties discussed the closer integration of the ITER Organization and the Domestic Agencies, current activities to re-baseline the project, and progress and challenges.
