BEIJING, April 20 (China Space News) -- China's aerospace progress has a close connection with the country's economic and social development and helps improve people's lives, said an official with the China National Space Administration (CNSA) at a press conference about the Space Day of China, which will fall on April 24.

Since 2016, China has set April 24 as the country's Space Day to mark the launch of its first satellite into space on April 24, 1970.

The various activities on Space Day have become a window for Chinese public and the world to get a better understanding of China's aerospace progress.

The theme of this year's activities is to "pursue space dreams for win-win cooperation." And the main venue will be in Changsha, capital of central China's Hunan Province. At the same time, space forums and exhibitions will be held across China.
