Bolivia and China have signed a deal to build a 300-million-dollar communications satellite to be launched into space within three years, officials here said Tuesday.

The agreement was signed on Monday by officials from the Bolivian Space Agency and the China Great Wall Industries Corporation (CGWIC), along with government officials from each country.

Once launched, the satellite is expected to greatly improve telecommunications in Bolivia, one of Latin America’s poorest and least developed countries.
