Islamabad: 30 May, 2024.I am delighted to extend my heartfelt congratulations to the entire nation on the momentous occasion of the launch of Pakistan’s second communication satellite, Paksat MM1. This remarkable achievement marks a significant advancement in our space and communication capabilities, and I am immensely proud of our national accomplishment.

The launch of Paksat MM1 from China’s Xichang Satellite Launch Centre is a testament to the strong collaboration and partnership between our two countries. It is through such cooperative endeavors that we can propel our nation forward and harness the power of technology for the benefit of our people.

I am particularly excited about the potential impact of Paksat MM1 on internet connectivity across Pakistan. With its state-of-the-art communication technology, this satellite promises to revolutionize our digital landscape and provide the fastest internet facility throughout the country. This will not only enhance the lives of our citizens but also contribute to the promotion of economic activities, e-commerce, and e-governance.

The positioning of Paksat MM1 in a geostationary orbit 36,000 kilometers above Earth is an impressive feat that showcases our nation’s scientific and technological prowess. This achievement would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of the talented individuals at the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (Suparco) and all those involved in this mission. I extend my sincere gratitude to each and every one of them for their unwavering commitment.

As we celebrate this milestone, let us remember that it is the collective efforts and determination of our people that drive our progress. The launch of Paksat MM1 is a testament to our nation’s potential and the bright future that lies ahead.

Once again, my heartfelt congratulations to the team at Suparco, and the entire nation on this remarkable achievement.
