Djibouti has signed a billion-dollar deal with Hong Kong Aerospace Technology Group to set up a rocket and satellite launch site in the country. The project signed with Hong Kong Aerospace Technology Group will take 5 years, said the President of the Republic of Djibouti.
The project “also includes the construction of a port and a highway of international standing in the northern region of Obock for the transport of materials necessary for the development of aerospace sites”, read a statement released by Djiboutian President Ismail Omar Guelleh on Monday evening. “The agreement provides for the final concession of the infrastructure built to the Djiboutian side after 30 years of co-management,” Guelleh added.
