Dear <<First Name>>,
Welcome to your SpaceWatch Middle East Newsletter.
There have been a couple of important events in the space industry over the past week. The week began with Yuri's Night - the 55th anniversary of the first human spaceflight - and was followed by the 32rd International Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Co.
Some of the outcomes of the Space Symposium relevant to the Middle East are included in this find newsletter and on our online portal, such as the US announcement that it intends to start space security dialogues with Gulf Cooperation Council member states in the coming months.
There was also the announcement by the Turkish government to form a space agency within the next three months, not to mention the Disrupt Space conference in Bremen, Germany, that proved to be a new concept in space events bringing fresh ideas and industry professionals together.
This week's feature is by ThorGroup's Chairman and President, John B. Sheldon, who analyses the regional strategic and military implications of the Franco-Egyptian satellite deal, and what it means for the French space industry in the Middle East.
