Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh on Monday described India as a key global player in the space sector and said that it is keen to cooperate with United Arab Emirates (UAE) to take the industry to new heights.

Singh who is leading the official Indian delegation to “Abu Dhabi Space Debate” shared his thoughts along with the resident of Israel, Isaac Herzog in the opening ceremony

The minister said that the Indian space industry today is renowned across the globe for two things – reliability and economy

"India is also keenly promoting the development of startups in the space sector to facilitate entry of foreign government and private sector entities, Singh added.

Singh also said that India started its space journey seven decades back from a scratch and is today acknowledged to be a leading space power. 

He said that the highlight of India’s journey has been its thrust on indigenous development through the dedication and hard work of its scientists guided by the commitment of the leaders.

The minister added, "The indigenously developed space sector of India and the fast-growing Space sector of the UAE have a lot of complementariness that can be harnessed." 

He said, if we want to ensure that space remains a sector to serve our shared humanity, it is important to bring all the stakeholders together to discuss and deliberate about the space and in this regard, this platform has the potential to shape the future of the sector.
