In March 2019, the UAE government launched the National Space Strategy 2030, which sets the general framework for the UAE's space industry and activities carried out by public and private sectors for the years leading up to 2030.
The National Space Strategy aims at achieving the UAE’s vision in the field of space exploration, technologies and applications. It also constitutes one of the pillars of the regulatory framework for the space sector in the country.
The National Space Strategy includes 6 objectives, 21 programmes and 79 initiatives, which translate into focus areas and programmes benefiting more than 85 entities in the UAE.
The UAE Space Agency is responsible for following up on the implementation of the strategy in cooperation with strategic partners and more than 20 agencies and space centres abroad.
