The meeting, hosted by the G20 Saudi Secretariat, as a part of the International Conferences Program honoring the G20 Saudi presidency Year 2020, is titled Space Economy Leader Meeting — 20.
Its purpose is to facilitate a stage on which influential countries (who foster the common vision of elevating the space sector) can collaborate on future and existing projects revolving around peaceful space exploration, space industry investment, and space science innovation.
Prince Sultan Bin Salman, Chairman of the Saudi Space Commission, stressed the importance of this first-of-its-kind meeting, which was initiated by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Not only will it serve as a platform on which cooperation takes place, but also as a forum through which the Kingdom's political, economic, and scientific commitments to peace and international development are underscored.
