China fusion research has been carried out in a wide range from nuclear fusion research to basic plasma physics since1950s. The fundamental physics, plasma control, diagnostics, plasma wall interaction, fusion martials and engineering relevant has been addressed. In parallel, the thriving fusion research team including engineering and physics is formed. The successful programs like EAST and HL-2A have proved opportunities to address new scientific and technological problems in support of ITER and CFETR research. Significant progress has been made in the last decades on both devices. The frame of China fusion program is now evolving from a small subject to a large national agenda. Strongly financial and policy support have been given by Chinese government. Coordinating strategies of short-term and long-term activities have been made among China domestic fusion organizations (ASIPP, SWIP, USTC, CAEP, HUST, DHU, SJTU, TH, PKU, ZJU, DUT and SCU). China, as a partner of ITER, is in the leading position among the participants in the ITER project in carrying out the procurement package parts system research. In addition, beyond ITER, the concept design of CFETR, aiming to bridge gaps between ITER and DEMO, is in the integrated design of physics and engineering.
