Welcome Message

Message from Ms. Mazlan Othman, Director, UNOOSA  Message from Mr. Zhaoyao Wang, Director General, CMSA
 

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the United Nations/China Workshop on Human Space Technology which is jointly organized by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA), on behalf of the Government of China, and co-organized by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA).

This Workshop is a part of the series of activities under the Human Space Technology Initiative (HSTI) in UNOOSA. It will bring together senior experts, professionals and decision-makers from around the world to exchange information on the latest developments in human space flight and exploration, microgravity research and educational activities. The aim is to create further awareness on the benefits of human space technology, and identify potential opportunities for emerging space-faring countries to participate in space exploration-related activities.

During the past years, UNOOSA has conducted many workshops all over the world with great success, bringing together experts from many different countries and supporting them in setting up fruitful collaborative activities which often last many years. This is always one of the most pleasant aspects of our work. Therefore, it is my great pleasure that this time the Chinese government and CMSA have consented to host this Workshop in the beautiful city of Beijing and to organize it together with the HSTI team. With such a strong partner as China, I am convinced that this Workshop will be extraordinary and interesting, and valuable results will be achieved for the whole space community.

On behalf of the United Nations, I am very pleased to welcome you to this Workshop.

 

On behalf of China Manned Space Agency (CMSA), representing the Chinese government, I have the honor to welcome you to the United Nations/China Workshop on Human Space Technology. The members of our Local Organizing Committee are working hard so as to provide excellent services to you and try to make the event great successful.

Since its establishment in 1992, CMSA has organized 11 flight missions and sent 10 Chinese astronauts into outer space, which made great successes in human space exploration activities. The year 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of China’s manned space flight mission. These achievements are crucial steps towards fulfilling China’s plans of building a manned space station around the year 2020, which would benefit the world by promoting international cooperation in the utilization of the station for the peaceful exploration and use of outer space.

Thanks to the HSTI launched by UNOOSA, the Workshop will provide great opportunities for space colleagues from the world to share and exchange information and ideas on human space exploration activities. I believe those exchanges will definitely enhance the friendship among us and the international cooperation in the endeavor.

As Confucius said, “It is a delight to have friends coming from afar!”. China has a 5,000-year-long history and civilization. Beijing is an ancient and a vibrant modern metropolis with a history of over 3,000 years and has served as a capital for more than 800 years.

On behalf of CMSA, I sincerely welcome you to this Workshop!
