Since the establishment of New China in 1949, Socialist construction projects have made rapid progress and industrial and agricultural enterprises have embarked upon Unprecedented production under the correct leadership of the Chinese Communist Party. The demand for weather forecasting by the various productive agencies has become increasingly more urgent and apart from short-range forecasting, the call for medium-and long-range forecasting has gradually increased. For the past decade, there has been rapid progress in meteorology in China, and great achievements have been made--whether in the establishment of meteorological stations, or in the training of cadres, or in research. At the same time, Chinas research on long-range weather forecasting for the past decade is no exception to this rule. In 1958 medium-and long-range weather forecasting was declared by the Central Meteorological Bureau to be one of the three cardinal meteorological marshals atmospheric control, agricultural meteorology and medium-and long-range forecasting, to which full notice was given by the meteorological stations of China.
