Vietnam: As India readies to construct a ground satellite station in Vietnam, the Vietnamese Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has said that the project showcases of cooperation between ASEAN and India. The Ministry said that it’s a project for “establishing stations for probe, satellite data collection and remote sensing data processing facility for ASEAN.”
India has surveyed two locations in Ho Chi Minh City and Binh Duong, but is yet to make a decision on the final location. With a budget of $23 million, the satellite station will not only allow Vietnam to learn the techniques and experience of remote sensing from India, it will also strengthen close cooperation with other countries in the region, and give Vietnam access to training for its human resources in this field.
