"Many international satellite companies will be able to adopt these connector standards and entrust the launch of their satellites to us," said Li Tongyu, head of the academy's aerospace department.
Saturday's mission marked the first time China had launched a satellite for a European country.
"The successful launch of the Belarusian satellite will boost the Chinese aerospace industry's global competitive power and pave the way for the export of Chinese satellites, rockets and space equipment," said Wu Yanhua, vice head of the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defence.
China has successfully completed 43 launch missions for more than 20 countries, regions and international satellite organizations since 1990.
