"We cooperated with Pakistan Space & Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO) to develop satellite projects."

"Within the scope of the agreement, we will carry out joint studies on electric communication satellites and other space projects."

Mutual bond is beyond measure, and it is so heart-warming to see it being developed in a structured manner, providing institutional strength.
But, we really need to accelerate our regional approach, which will create far reaching effects.

Economic Co-operation Organisation is a perfect platform that has been dormant for far too long. It has a potential to create a mega trading and potentially a security block, much like the EU and ASEAN.
Other trading blocks such as NAFTA provide massive economic benefits to just 3 countries, America is the largest economy in the world, but most of its trade is within NAFTA, right at its doorstep.

ECO has a massive potential that has not been truly realised as yet.
The member countries have a combine population of over 500 million, and still growing, that's a massive market.

Pakistan 230 million, projected 400 million
Turkiye 84 Million, projected 90+ million
Iran 84 million, projected 90+ million
Afghanistan 36 million, projected 70 million
Uzbekistan 24 million
Kazakhstan 18 million
Azerbaijan 10 million
Tajikistan 9 million
Kyrgyzstan 6 million
Turkmenistan 6 Million

I'm unsure of projections for central Asian states. There is also the option to add Bangladesh to this group, it is a little further away, but a massive market of 180 million and looking to expand it's options.

That's potentially a market of over 800 million, 1 billion if we include Bangladesh.
