Ecuador to Develop Its Own Satellite with Chinese Help

Ecuador is seeking to develop its own satellite using space technology from China and to collaborate with the Asian country in weapons production, Ecuadorian Defense Minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa said Wednesday in Beijing. The minister expressed Ecuador’s intent to increase its military presence in China and learn about cyber-security models developed in the Asian country, a step she considers “necessary” to combat the “threat of cyber-warfare.” Espinosa is visiting China to broaden exchanges in ongoing projects, in fields such as defense, as well as other unexplored fields like the transfer of aeronautical technology and China’s participation in Ecuador’s defense industry.
