When we started this space project more than 10 years ago, we clearly knew that what was needed to complete it successfully was patience, commitment and a strong team. Yet we launched our BulgariaSat-1, we stepped up as one of the leading space nations in Europe and opened the path for the development of the related Bulgarian high-tech sectors and talented specialists. When one Bulgarian company succeeds, it is the Bulgarian business and the Bulgarian nation succeeding too.
