Abstract: The Chinese Giant Solar Telescope (CGST) is a national major project for the next generation of ground-based solar telescopes proposed by the entire solar community of China. It will be an Infrared and Optical solar telescope. The spatial resolution is expected to be equivalent to an 8m-diameter telescope, and light-gathering power equivalent to a 5m-diameter telescope. The major scientific objective is to obtain precise measurements of the solar vector magnetic field with high-spatial resolution. A brief introduction and current progress report is given in this presentation.
