China launches two navigation satellites on the lines of race with American GPS

China has stepped up another step in the creation of the Global Positioning Network, successfully launching two navigation satellites on the lines of the race with the American GPS. China's official news agency Xinhua reported on Monday that Sunday night BEDO-III satellites from the Tsingchang Satellite Center located in Sichuan's southwestern province were launched from the Long March-3B carrier rocket.
Two newly launched satellites represent the third phase of the BEDO navigation satellite system. This system will provide services to the countries involved in the Belt and Road Initiative. This has been aimed at building a complete global positioning network by 2020
