New Zealand Space Agency
Member since: 2017
The rise of a commercially-led launch industry has been the catalyst for New Zealand establishing its place in the global space sector, and it is now recognized as an emerging hub of New Space activity.
The New Zealand Space Agency was set up in 2016 and is the lead government agency for space policy, regulation and sector development, sitting within the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment. The Agency supports rocket launches through administration of a world-leading regulatory regime. It also provides policy advice to the New Zealand Government on advancing R&D, growing New Zealand’s space industry and engaging the public on the importance of space. The Agency works closely with international partners to foster research collaboration and address common challenges in space.
