Michael Green at APRSAF-16 shows interest in regional GPS

 Having a read of the interview of Michael Green at APRSAF-16, which can be found here

Michael is quoted as saying “I know Japan has its Quasi-Zenith Satellite System, a regional GPS that is under development. We may want to have discussions concerning this kind of regional GPS or other initiatives in that area. That’s one of the things I’m considering.”

Is this something that Michael Green said off the top of his head? Or is the Australian government considering involvement in some sort of regional GPS?

I guess it does line up with one of the stated priorities of the Space Policy Unit – namely the navigation priority. Does anyone know anything further on this one?
