Strategic Direction of Emerging Space Nations
Day: Wednesday 4 October
Time: 13:45 - 14:45 AZT (GMT+4)
Location: Heydar Aliyev Center (HAC) Auditorium
Space is vast becoming an important tool in advancing the developmental agendas of emerging space nations. We are at an era where space programmes of emerging space nations are receiving similar priority from national decision makers as that of space faring nations. What has changed?
In this session we will discuss why the chosen countries have ventured into space and why their governments are rallying behind them. The interesting question we need answered is 'Why are emerging nations suddenly giving space a chance?' The speakers will further share with us the global relevance of their national programmes. Furthermore, we will understand whether there is a common strategic drive within emerging space nations or whether their efforts are unique in nature.
