Abstract

China’s space policies have expanded in numerous areas and have generated enormous documents during the past decades. It is impossible to cover all topics within one chapter; however, during the past decade, particularly the last 5 years, some fundamental space policies have played a pivotal role in China’s space security and sustainability development. Consequently, this chapter concentrates on these prominent movements and provides an overview of these policies and the influences of them.
