Event Description

As the commercial space industry develops, private sector entities are looking to increase their contributions to global partnerships in space exploration and services. This changing environment is further affected by the establishment of the Sustainable Development Goals, which call for worldwide action among governments, business and civil society. As industry finds itself cooperating more and more with the international fora both in the private sector and with governments, it inevitably needs to recognize the impact it has inherited on social responsibility and the new role it plays in efforts to improve lives around the world.

It is very important for us to start the discussion of how supporting international development efforts plays a role in the space sector and to develop the necessary practices to ensure that the needs of the emerging space nation stakeholders and the commercial space world are understood and met.

The panel will focus on how local and overseas companies decide on starting or expanding their presence in the Asia Pacific region, the regional policies that encourage this cooperation and growth, and how societal impact relates to cooperative opportunities between the business sector and the region.

The two hours session, the discussion will focus on space industry representatives providing an overview of their latest activities in transforming the commercial space sector, and offer opportunities for discussion of their vision of innovative ideas in driving the next decades in space travel and technology application. It will also provide a forum for open discussion of how social impact strategies relate to private sector local and regional engagement activities and dialogues in support of meeting their organizations’ social responsibilities are met.
