A diplomatic delegation led by Lyu Fan, the People’s Republic of China’s Ambassador to Spain, visited CTAG’s facilities with representatives of IGAPE.
After a welcome meeting, they visited different areas. The ambassador had the opportunity to see first-hand some of CTAG’s new testing equipment, such as the new climatic chambers and the battery laboratory. In addition, the ambassador tried one of the autonomous vehicle prototypes developed by CTAG, in which he was able to see the degree of development and the capabilities in the area of ADAS and automated driving.
This visit has helped to promote the Galician automotive sector and possible collaborations with one of the emerging markets with more international projection.
Representatives of CTAG have visited China in a direct mission coordinated from IGAPE. The objective of this mission has been to verify the development of the automotive sector and establish direct contact with the leading automotive manufacturers in the Asian country.
To do this, they visited the main automotive manufacturers, such as BAIC (Beijing), JAC (Hefei), Geely (Guangzhou) and SAIC (Shanghai). Working meetings were also held with CATARC, automobile test center of reference in China.
During this trip, it has also been possible to contrast the high degree of progress and implementation of electric mobility in China and the increasing quality of vehicles being manufactured in this country. In addition, the mission has been useful to present the capabilities of the Galician industry to potential Chinese collaborators.
Puerto de Vigo and Grupo Breogán have participated in this mission together with CTAG, and IGAPE
