Abstract : The Asia-Pacific Workshop on Multilateral Cooperation in Space Technology and Application, co-sponsored by China, Pakistan and Thailand, was held on November 30 to December 5, 1992, in Beijing. It drew more than 130 participants from 23 countries and regions. State Councillor and Minister of Foreign Affairs Qian Qichen addressed the opening ceremony. General Secretary Jiang Zemin met with all delegates attending the workshop. Space collaboration, microgravity experiments, small satellite technology, remote sensing satellite technology/applications were on the workshop's agenda. In developing their space industry, Asia-Pacific countries are grappling with low funding and limited technology and information. These problems should be solved through closer cooperation among the countries under the principles of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit.
