SESSION 5: SPACE INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT

Friday 26 April

Recent developments in the global space sector demonstrates an increasing role played by the space industry and private sector institutions. This underscores the need for developing a local space industry as an important segment of the space value chain, especially where there is a move for space agencies to farm out key space initiatives to the local industry rather than building in-house capabilities to implement these. The Session focus will be on:

  1. Unpacking the role to be played by a local space industry sector in the space value chain,
  2. Understanding the evolution of private space sector institutions from the start-up phase to the fully operational phase.
