According to Luo, China is planning a few unmanned moon-landing space flights. An unmanned flight near the moon will take place in 2007. China will realize the moon landing in 2012, and will take samples of the moon back to the earth in 2017.

China has a plan to build a low-cost, pollution free carrier rocket with capacity of 25 tons before 2011.

Luo Ge said to NASA Administrator Michael Griffin that China is now cooperating with Europe, Russia, Brazil, Nigeria and Venezuela in the field of space. He said it was a pity that the US doesn't have space cooperation with China now, calling it a sign of decreased openness of the US compared with it was twenty years ago.
