Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher de Venecia said he expects the country’s space industry to grow in the next few years following the signing into law of the Philippine Space Act.
The Philippine Space Act is one of the Pangasinan politiko’s pet projects.
De Venecia said Filipino scientists will not have to go abroad to pursue a career in the space industry.
“With the Philippine Space Act, I would not be surprised that in the near future, we will experience a swelling in our own Filipino space scientists, space science researchers, and astronomers who have had to go abroad to put their knowledge to good use,” he said.
“Now, they’ll have a PhilSA to come home to,” de Venecia added.
