AP-SGW and the SGAC
Following the successes of previous SGAC Asia-Pacific workshops and the recent SG[ASEAN] workshop held in January, AP-SGW 2018 will celebrate its 5 th year in Singapore. Past AP-SGWs from 2014-2017 were successfully hosted in India, the Phillippines, Indonesia and Japan.
Asia-Pacific being the largest region for space growth, there is a need to continue building a community of practice in the region to capitalize upon opportunities. Additionally, with cutting-edge satellite technologies and other advancements, the scope for cooperaion and synergy in the Asia-Pacific field of space is tremendous.
This coming AP-SGW workshop will build upon the roadmap of previous years, providing an ideal platform for delegates to voice their opinions, exchange ideas on salient space issues, and connect with one another. AP-SGW will also foster a unique environment, bringing together students, young professionals, and representatives from academia, agency and industry.
The output from the working groups will be presented at the AP-SGW and further submitted as SGAC recommendations to United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UN COPUOS), in addition to potentially presenting them at high-level scientific conferences.
