The Developing Research Center (DRC) is a leading policy research and consulting institution directly under Chinese State Council—in sum, the top think tank of the Chinese government. Its main function is to undertake research on long-term strategic issues concerning China's economic and social development. One of the DRC goals is to develop links with the international community and cooperation with major international organizations.

On Friday 28 October, President Mr. Wei LI and a delegation from DRC came to ITER to visit the construction site and to learn more about the international aspects of this world-spanning energy project.
