BEIJING, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- State Councilor Liu Yandong on Monday called for closer global cooperation regarding the use of satellite navigation systems.

Satellite navigation has touched on many aspects of economic activity, as well as the lives of ordinary people, Liu said while speaking at the opening ceremony of the seventh Meeting of the International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (ICG).

Over 240 delegates from 16 countries and regions and 18 international organizations are attending the meeting from Nov. 5 to 9, discussing topics ranging from satellite compatibility and interoperability to the enhancement of satellite navigation performance.

"In the field of satellite navigation, an era of major exchange and cooperation has come," Liu said, adding that it is the shared understanding and responsibility of the global community to deepen and expand cooperation between satellite navigation systems worldwide.
