In 2014 China didn’t have any private space companies. Today there are over a 100 and growing. SpaceQ will now begin to cover China’s emerging space economy on a more regular basis. That coverage will include what the export opportunities are for western nations.

To begin our coverage we present the first of a two part podcast, an introduction to China’s space economy.

My guest for this weeks Space Economy podcast is Blaine Curio, a space and satcom industry consultant based in Hong Kong who focuses primarily on China. Beside his own consultancy, Orbital Gateway, Blaine also consults as a Senior Affiliate with Euroconsult. And this past summer, he along with co-host Jean Deville, launched a podcast called the Dongfang Hour, or literally translated, Eastern Hour.

The second part of this podcast will be published this Wednesday. Listen in.
