China to assist with Bangladesh's first space satellite launch

From http://www.earthtimes.org/

Dhaka - China has promised to help Bangladesh with infrastructure projects including launching a satellite, media reports said Tuesday.

"China promised assistance to launch Bangladesh's first ever telecoms satellite," the state-run BSS news agency quoted Foreign Minister Dipu Moni as saying after a meeting between visiting Chinese Vice President Xi Jinpeng and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wazed Monday.

Bangladesh has long been planning to launch a space satellite to improve telecommunications services, map natural resources, broadcast television programmes and obtain meteorological data for disaster warnings.

The two sides inked an agreement on economic cooperation under which Beijing is to provide Dhaka with around 5.5 million US dollars as a grant.

The Chinese leader, who is on a two-day official visit to Bangladesh, also promised help to build a deep sea port in the Bay of Bengal, a water treatment plant in Dhaka and a fertiliser factory, the foreign minister said.

Dipu Moni added that Beijing also offered Dhaka expertise to combat terrorism and militancy and more cooperation to fight the adverse impacts of climate change.

The two leaders agreed to explore ways to reduce the huge trade gap between the two countries through easy access for Bangladeshi products to Chinese market, the foreign minister said.

She said that Beijing was also keen to invest more in the telecommunications sector in Bangladesh.
