China has welcomed Pakistan for joint collaboration for finding an obvious place in the global aerospace industry, as informed by the officials on Thursday.
Pakistan and China have been doing bilateral cooperation in the aerospace division for many years. Pakistan has very recently introduced two of its satellites into the orbit from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in China.
The two Pakistani satellites—the Pakistan Remote Sensing Satellite-1 (PRSS-1) and the Pakistan Technology Evaluation Satellite-1A (PakTES-1A) were launched into space via the Chinese Long March 2C vehicle.
The satellite PRSS-1 which weighs 1,200kg would be operating in an orbit that is in sync with the sun at a height of 640km.
In the meantime, a report has been generated which has forecasted that within the timeframe of the coming 5 years, there would be a continuous growth in the global commercial aerospace division and China would become the most significant force in the progress and growth of the aerospace industry.
Euroconsult’s — (an international satellite market consultancy, Pacome Revillion) CEO has said that he is impressed with the passion that the youth of China possess for the space industry. He further added that they applaud the development that some Chinese organisations have made at the various levels with a great amount of passion and talents that these people have got for the space activities.
In recent years, the government of China has been motivating private enterprises to get busy in the industry too.
The Vice President of China Great Wall Industry Corporation—He Xing said that the capital investment into both the conventional firms and businesses has largely affected the business environment for the sector and that too in a positive way.
He added that the domestic commercial aerospace firms have almost covered the complete industrial chain, which includes the satellite design and growth, and the commercial application of rockets.
