China's domestically developed Beidou Navigation Satellite System has been widely used in many public sectors and business fields at home and abroad, according to the China Satellite Navigation Office. By the end of 2019, more than 100 million Beidou-based navigation chips, modules and other products had been sold. The system had by then been applied to nearly 6.6 million taxis, buses and trucks around China as well as more than 70,000 fishing vessels across the country. More than 10,000 fishermen had been rescued or received assistance after they used a Beidou device to ask for help.
