International trade and industry minister Azmin Ali in Los Angeles, USA recently said that representatives from Starlink, the broadband internet provider operated by Elon Musk’s aerospace company SpaceX, are coming down to Malaysia next week.

While here they will go through their proposals with the government to determine if the company will expand its satellite services into Malaysia.

He is confident that an agreement would bolster the opportunity for Malaysian companies to get involved in space technology.

Azmin also noted that a Johor-based Malaysian company was already manufacturing essential components for the satellites built by Starlink.

Malaysian Investment Development Authority (Mida) CEO Arham Abdul Rahman has also been quoted saying that the negotiations with SpaceX and Starlink were at the middle stages.

However, nothing has yet been set in stone. Although its benefits to the government and companies involved are clear, What Starlink would bring to everyday Malaysians is still up in the air.
