Indian Space Industry has a long history of participating in the National Space Programme. With evolving landscape of space sector within the country, Government of India envisages a bigger role for Space Sector Industries and Start-ups. As part of Space Sector Reforms, Government of India has established Indian National Space Promotion and Authorization Centre (IN-SPACe) to provide a level playing field for Space Sector Industries.
I am glad to learn that an exclusive Space Industry Advocacy Group -- Indian Space Association (ISpA) has been formed to voice their expectations from IN-SPACe.
I believe that ISpA will play a key role in articulating Industry views on implementation of space sector reforms resulting in good policy outcomes, thereby benefiting business, economy and society. In due course, India will have an effective and efficient space policy, regulation and industry standards.
ISpA will have to focus on working with all the stakeholders to improve the competitiveness of India’s Space Sector Industry, promote innovation and knowledge sharing, create leadership opportunities and contribute in the development of Industry Standards for Space Sector. This is vital for the development of a sustainable and vibrant space eco-system in India.
I congratulate ISpA on their formation and wish them all the very best in endeavours.
Space is the new frontier of human progress and under the bold leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, India has embarked on a mission to become a global leader in space and satellite industry. At ISpA, we aim to work with stakeholders across the value chain to bring one view of the industry to the table and complement the efforts of the Government to accelerate the development of India’s space ecosystem.
Our honourable Prime Minister's vision of making India a global space economic hub will be realised with synergized efforts of all stakeholders. The scientific legacy of ISRO combined with the enterprise of Indian industry and drive and intellectual power of our youth will take our nation towards the new Space Revolution. It will be ISpA’s endeavour to empower and synergize the space ecosystem in India to achieve our dream of becoming a leading Global player.
