Malaysia offers to share sat

Satellite to be used to boost int'l cooperation, continent's image

KAMPALA, Uganda — Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad on Tuesday invited African countries to share the cost of the launch and use of his country’s third satellite in 2004 to boost international cooperation and promote the continent’s image worldwide.

Speaking at a Ugandan resort at the end of a four-day conference called to discuss ways of attracting direct foreign investment in Africa, Mohamad said the satellite would be launched to compliment two others that cover Southeast Asia.

“While the costs may be prohibitive to start your own satellites, we could share the satellite to lower costs and enable African countries to reach out to Europe, Southeast Asia, Australia and the U.S.,” Mohamad told industryites from Africa, Malaysia and the Caribbean at the Global 2001 Smart Partnership Intl. Dialogue. “We have found that control and ownership of satellites has been important in promoting our image abroad.”
