We are (one point) better than Kazakhstan (for the time being)
Since it is a trend to show the feel good “I know space technology better after the TV program”, better show some useful information.
For example, Kazakhstan are 8 times the size of Malaysia (both East Malaysia and West Malaysia), but with 15 millions population. Kazakhstan share the largest lake : Caspian Sea with a few country. They are another country(beside Turkey) applying for EU status. That’s mean, Kazakhstan has the potential to jump WAY AHEAD of Malaysia, if they improve their record to join EU.
