On January 12, the 2021 BeiDou Belt and Road Training Course--Precise and Intelligent Positioning Training Course Series was wrapped up in Nanning, Guangxi.

The training course attracted nearly 70 trainees from Indonesia, Laos, Cambodia, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and other countries and regions along the Belt and Road to participate, including 18 on-site trainees.

The aim of the training course is to provide special training on BDS-based navigation and positioning technology applications and cultivate talent for trainees from ASEAN countries, so as to boost cooperation between China and ASEAN countries in the field of satellite navigation, with a goal to promote BDS globally.

The three-day training courses on BDS, combined both theories and practice, were delivered both online and offline, in a mixture of live-streaming and prerecorded modes.

Lectures cover such topics including overview of BDS, applications of BDS-based high-precision positioning services in smart phones and applications of BDS/GNSS in precision agriculture.
