China to offer disaster prevention services for countries along BRI
May 22, 2019

China will offer customized data services to more countries including Pakistan for disaster prevention through its Fengyun meteorological satellites along the Belt and Road project.

A senior official of China Satellite Meteorological Centre in Beijing told that the services will be provided based on the results of a survey of 81 nations.

He said by the end of April, 22 countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Russia, Libya and Sudan had responded to the survey and showed their readiness to install the application software platforms for weather forecasting.

It is to be noted here that many countries along the Belt and Road routes have high mountains, deserts, oceans and a lack of accurate meteorological information.
