Posted 27 April 2017 · Add Comment

The UAE Space Agency has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with its Algerian counterpart the Algerian Space Agency.

The MoU defines a framework for collaboration in the peaceful use of space, in line with the UAE Space Agency’s strategic plans to enhance collaboration with international stakeholders in the sector.

The MoU covers various aspects of the peaceful use of outer space, as well as collaboration in the fields of policy-making, regulations, space science, technology, and human capital development in the space sector.

The MoU was signed at the Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs by  Dr. Mohamed Al Ahbabi, director general of the UAE Space Agency, and Dr. Azzedine Oussedik, director general of the Algerian Space Agency. The signing was attended by Abdelkader Messahel, Algerian Minister for Maghreb, African Union and Arab League Affairs, HE Dr. Khalifa Al Romaithi, Chairman of the UAE Space Agency, and other senior representatives from both parties.

Al Romaithi highlighted that the MoU is in line with the UAE Space Agency’s efforts to develop stronger ties with various international stakeholders in the sector, with the aim of supporting the national space sector and assuring its development over the coming decades.

Al Ahbabi said that the two parties are joined by mutual interest in space exploration, supported by various initiatives and programs. This collaboration, Al Ahbabi added, is bound to support these efforts, especially within the context of pan-Arab collaboration to revive the region’s ancient position as a pioneer of space science.

The MoU is the second signed with an Arab space agency, after the singing of a similar document with the Bahraini National Space Science Agency last year.
