While delivering the inaugural address, Dr K Sivan shed light on the opening up of India’s space sector and exploring emerging opportunities in space. He broke down the steps on how ISRO achieved the recent accomplishments and has moved closer to commercialization of space operations.

He delved deep on how Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in space are the necessary stepping stones to promote research and development and exploit it for better service delivery.
