AsiaSat CEO Hopes ‘Sluggish’ Market Will Pick Up

By | May 28, 2004 | Uncategorized

AsiaSat CEO Peter Jackson believes market conditions are likely to remain difficult for satellite operators in Asia, and an upsurge in fortunes could be more than a year away. He told Satellite Today, “Despite some economic improvement, the Asian transponder market remains sluggish. This is because the transponder market usually lags behind the economic recovery, so I think it is very unlikely that we will see a dramatic increase this year or even at the beginning of next year.”

A more in-depth interview with Peter Jackson can be found in the May 31 issue of Satellite News. For more information about subscribing to PBI Media’s satellite newsletters, check out our Web site at http://www.satellitetoday.com
