G’Day AAA Space Industry Xchange

Event Description

Australia’s space sector is experiencing significant growth and momentum. This evolution in its space maturity is opening more doors internationally to contribute to space programs and activities of other space nations such as the United States.

Australia and the US have a long-standing and important relationship that has great potential to further unleash innovation through technology, trade and investment, and research and development collaboration. As the global commercial space sector rapidly expands, how can Australia and US take its collaboration to the next level to boost its respective space capabilities and stimulate further growth in each other’s commercial space sectors?
