SOURCE: China Space News UPDATED: 28 December 2015

BEIJING, Dec 28. (China Space News) — Bolivia's Chinese-made Tupac Katari satellite has generated 19 million U.S. dollars of income in 2015, director of the Bolivian Space Agency (ABE) Ivan Zambrana said on Dec. 17.

Bolivia's first satellite, named after a historical figure, was launched on Dec. 20, 2013 from China's Xichang Satellite Launch Center, and began operating commercially in April 2014, following a series of tests.

The TK-SAT 1, said Zambrana, is expected to generate 2 million a month in the next year, making it a profitable venture.
