The Space Industry Virtual Summit 2021 hosted by ZASPACE, South African National Space Agency (SANSA), the Embassy of Brazil in Pretoria, and the Brazilian Aerospace Cluster aims to bring together the space industries of Brazil and South Africa to foster business partnerships and cooperation between the two nations following their memorandum of understanding signed in 2020.
The virtual event will serve as platform to discuss the potential benefits for all involved. The first day will introduce key stakeholders and explore business in both Brazil and South Africa. The second day will consist of B2B networking sessions to explore collaboration in the value chain of South African and Brazilian space businesses.
Dr Valanathan Munsami, CEO of the South African Space Agency, and Carlos Moura, president of the Brazilian Space Agency, will deliver the keynote addresses. Other speakers include Mike Sage, CEO of Structured Finance Solutions at FNB South Africa, and Antônio Yukio Ueta, organising committee member from the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research.
