CAIRO: Israel’s leading communications satellite company Spacecom, which operates the AMOS satellites across the world, hopes that recent discussions with South Sudan will help boost its role in the young country’s communications and telecommunications industry.

According to a statement from South Sudan’s Ministry of Telecommunications, officials met and discussed potential cooperation on future communications projects in the country. They also reported that there would be further meetings with other Israeli telecom, aerospace and technology companies.

South Sudan, the world’s youngest country, is hopeful that its relationship with Israel will help produce high-end communications technology in the near future in order to bolster its young telecom industry, which has been struggling with the poor infrastructure in the country.

Spacecom’s AMOS-5 satellite, serving Africa, began commercial operations on January 25. It is slated to be a prime carrier of African satellite communications traffic in both broadcast and data services in the years to come, the company said on its website.

Maj. Gen Madut Biar Yel, South Sudan’s Minister of Telecommunications and Postal Services said in a published statement, “it is a great opportunity for my associates and me to come to Israel as guests of Spacecom to meet with leading players in the telecoms market, including Israel Minister of Communications Kachlon.

“As we build up our infrastructure, Israel and its industries provide ample experience of best practices which we can emulate.”
