China-Egypt Satellite Cooperation

 The South China Morning Post published on 3 July 2023 an article titled "Egypt Gets China-funded Satellites in Step towards Space Industry Ambitions" by Jevans Nyabiage.  

China has provided the Egyptian Space Agency with a $74 million grant to assemble, integrate, and test satellites and $68 million for the test center.  Egypt is the first African country to receive this kind of assistance from China.
