The visitors were accompanied on the ITER worksite by Jin Ju, Director of the General Administration Directorate for ITER, Su Mingxing from the Office of the Director-General, and Ivone Benfatto, Hao Tan and Joel Hourtoule from the Electrical Engineering Division.
On Monday 7 November, a delegation of 20 visitors from China Southern Power Grid Co., Ltd (CSG) were welcomed to the ITER worksite, invited by Schneider Electric Pacific and France.

CSG invests, constructs and operates power networks in five southern provinces of China over an area of one million square kilometres. Part of a two-week visit to France, the visit to ITER was a highlight, according to delegation members. They were greatly interested by ITER's power transmission and distribution, including the Chinese contribution in terms of design and equipment.
