China will launch about 120 satellites to meet the country's requirements in communication, space infrastructure and navigation sectors.
The cabinet has approved GSAT-15 and GSAT-16 communication satellite projects to create an in-orbit spare capacity to meet any contingency and protect the services of existing users, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said Friday.
