OECD Space Forum

 

In 2006, the OECD launched the OECD Space Forum in co-operation with the space community. The Forum aims to assist governments, space-related agencies and the private sector to better identify the statistical contours of the growing space sector worldwide, while investigating the space infrastructure’s economic significance and potential impacts for the larger economy.
