Burmese satellite in orbit within 5 years?

Burma’s government is working towards sending the country’s first satellite into space within five years, according to industry magazine Via Satellite. Deputy Minister of Communications and Information Technology Thaung Tin reportedly said the project was a “national priority” and that “although there is no timeline for the launch of a satellite, the selection process will follow that of the international mobile licenses, with an open, fair and transparent tendering process, followed by public consultation.”
