Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Sunday called for enhanced cooperation between India and China in high-technology areas.
There are also a lot of areas in which new opportunities can be explored, Wen said while visiting Indian Space Research Organisation's Satellite Centre, India's main centre for satellite development.
ISRO Chairman G Madhavan Nair made a presentation on India's space programme to Wen and the Chinese delegation that accompanied him.
"Basically, it was a sensitisation visit. He (Wen) generally expressed the view that there are a lot of areas for cooperation and avenues in high-technology areas," Nair told PTI after the Chinese premier's visit.
India has a memorandum of understanding with China in space applications in the area of remote sensing.
"We are in touch with CNSA (China National Space Agency)," Nair said. "We also have a joint working group, which meets once in a year."
