On September 26, China's Meteorological Development Index (MDI) Report (2017) was released in Beijing. Mr.Petteri Taalas, Secretary-General of World Meteorological Organization (WMO) sent a congratulatory letter to extend his warm congratulations to China Meteorological Administration (CMA) for this innovative practice.

In the letter, Mr.Taalas says China’s MDI show remarkable progress and great achievements made by CMA in recent years, as well as the roles in contribution to the socio-economic development and well-being of the Chinese people. This method will serve as a good example for the global meteorological community to demonstrate the role and socio-economic benefits of meteorological service.

He says that China has always been one of the major contributors of WMO in the fields of integrated observation, weather forecast and climate prediction, public weather service and early warning, meteorological science and research, education and training, etc. The recent recognition as the World Meteorological Center and host of other WMO global or regional centers, more active involvement of Chinese experts in WMO activities, and international cooperation activities in the context of the Belt and Road Initiative demonstrate the rapid meteorological development in China and its willingness to make greater contribution to the international society.

Mr.Taalas wish CMA a prosperous future and greater contribution to the development of global meteorological service. (Sep.28)
