Chinese Domestic Agency approved

-Sabina Griffith

The Chinese Domestic Agency has been approved by the Chinese government and the formal establishment will take place after the summer. The good news was announced by former Vice-Minister Jinpei Cheng at the recent ITER Council meeting in Japan. In the middle of June, just before the Council meeting, the document applying for the establishment of the China DA was approved by the State Council.

The ITER China Office is located near the Ministry of Science and Technology in Beijing. Currently, there are 20 people working with the prospect of increasing the staff around the end of the year. The ITER China Office will be in charge of Procurement Packages allocated to China according to Common Understanding reached during the ITER negotiations. It will also coordinate domestic fusion research and development.
