“The Vietnamese newspaper Saigon Liberation reported on 22 August 2008 that a Vietnamese state company, Telecommunication International, which is responsible for the first Vietnamese telecommunications satellite VINASAT-1, has discussed with foreign customers the possibility to provide them services.

“Its important partners include Asia Broadcast Satellite [ABS], which is a big Asian company in telecommunications, based in Hong Kong, Universal Telecomm Services of the United States, Protostar of Singapore, and Thaicom of Thailand.

“Vietnam’s Telecom International and ABS have signed a protocol on the capacity of exchanges between VINASAT-1 and ABS-1. This document is used as a starting point for the cooperation between the two companies in telecommunication and satellite services.

“Medium scale satellite VINASAT-1 was launched in April 2008 with a capital of US$300 million. It can provide services over Southeast Asia, part of China, India, South Korea, Japan, Australia, and Hawaii. This satellite would last from 15 to 20 years. The transmitting capacity of VINASAT-1 corresponds to 10,000 telephone lines or 120 television stations.

“Before having its own telecommunication satellite, Vietnam had to spend $15 million each year on telecommunication satellite services of foreign countries such as of Russia, Australia, and Thailand.” Koh Santepheap, Vol.41, #6433, 26.8.2008

  • Siam [Thailand] Is Very Embarrassed at [29th] ASEAN Inter Parliamentary Assembly [AIPA] General Assembly [18-24 August in Singapore; because many countries supported the principle to prohibit invasions of one country against another]

  • Note:

    We could not yet find an AIPA report mentioning this; the legislators present decided, however, to hold the 30th AIPA General Assembly in Thailand in 2009 – normally a gesture of confidence towards a country]

    As for the basic orientation of the Assembly, we quote from the Opening Speech of the AIPA Assembly, by the Prime Minister of Singapore:

    “By 2015, ASEAN will become a single market and production base.

    The founders of AIPO understood the need to take a larger view of the region’s interests beyond national and domestic considerations.

    And when problems arise between ASEAN countries, which is inevitable from time to time, this will give you a feel for the people on the other side of the issue, so that we can keep the difficulties in perspective and maintain the friendship between our countries.

    This makes it even more necessary for parliamentarians to set the tone in ASEAN cooperation, to lead and manage domestic sentiments, to stand firm against xenophobic attitudes, and to support policies which keep our economies open and integrated.”
