In April 2019, the Australian Civil Space Strategy was released by the Australian Government outlining the plan to transform and grow Australia’s space industry over the next 10 years. It sets out a vision to lift the broader economy and to improve the lives of Australians by: opening doors internationally; promoting responsible regulation, risk management and culture; increasing national capability and inspiring and building a future workforce.

It is pleasing to note the balance between, on the one hand, energising and supporting the Australian space industry and its activities at home and abroad, and on the other hand, promoting responsible use of space, in the interests of all Australians of present and future generations. Such a balance is a foundational principle of the values that IALPG applies in its work for the Australian space industry. To view the Australian Civil Space Strategy visit the link below.
