Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, the Senior Minister of International Trade and Industry for Malaysia, believes that the satellite internet constellation will bolster the country's economic state.
He stated that it would strengthen the country's economic status not only in South East Asia but also on a global scale.
