On June 28, Dongguan Mayor Yuan Baocheng met with the British Consul General Alastair Morgan. Discussions were about UK- Dongguan cooperation on the China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) project, the first large scientific facility in Southern China. Located in Dalang Town, CSNS is a proposed accelerator-based neutron source, operated by the Institute of High Energy Physics. The construction started in 2011 and is planned for completion in 2017. It is expected that the CSNS construction and operation will have positive effects in promoting the sciences and high-tech development in the area.
