  China provides policy supports to the development and application of the indigenous Beidou Navigation Satellite System to get rid of the country’s heavy reliance on Global Position System (GPS), Wu Hailing, Senior Engineer of China Satellite Navigation Office said in an interview with People’s Daily Online Tuesday.

  "Before Beidou’s application takes shape, the domestic market is in fact dominated by GPS and its terminals. Particularly in some crucial industries for instance communications, that dominance is prevailing,” said Wu.

  In China, GPS is widely used in mobile location-based services and the core chips of GPS terminals rely on exports “100 percent”. “This is the status quo the Beidou system has to face. This is a severe challenge.”
