Abstract.   The superconducting tokamak research program begun in China in ASIPP since 1994. The program includes in existent superconducting tokamak HT-7 and the next new superconducting tokamak HT-7U that is one of national key research projects in China. With the elongation cross-section, divertor and higher plasma parameter the main objectives of HT-7U are widely investigation both of the physics and technology for steady state advanced tokamak as well as the investigation of power and particle handle under steady-state operation condition. The physics and engineering design have been completed and significant progresses on R&D and fabrication have been achieved. HT-7U will begin assembly at 2003 and plan to get first plasma around the end of 2004. HT-7U* will be changed to be EAST (Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak) soon.
