Commerce Pledges Support for Commercial Space Industry

Coming on the heels of Secretary Ross’s announcement of a new initiative to support space commerce, space-focused professionals filled the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., on March 12th – 15th for the satellite industry’s annual meeting.

On Monday, the industry heard from Secretary Ross about his plans for elevating space commerce functions within the department, a key objective in the Department of Commerce’s recently released strategic plan for 2018-2022.

NTIA Assistant Secretary David Redl addressed the convention on Wednesday, pledging his commitment to collaborating with the U.S. satellite industry – highlighting the importance of maintaining global leadership for satellite-based services and manufacturing. He told attendees that the United States needs a vibrant satellite sector, which directly supports tens of thousands of family-sustaining jobs and indirectly enables millions more in the larger economy.

Fast-paced innovation in the satellite sector is paving the way for a new era in satellite coverage that will strengthen our nation’s broadband infrastructure and power advanced services to improve people’s lives. “The Commerce Department is invested in the health and success of all aspects of the satellite sector, from spacecraft design and manufacturing to earth-station equipment standards and manufacturing,” said Assistant Secretary Redl.

Upcoming Event: DFI Impact Investment Roundtable

DFI Impact Investment Roundtable
06 Dec 2017
London, UK
EBRD

Senior-level Conversation with Development Finance Institutions on Investing for Impact.

As impact investing grows in scale and attracts greater investment flows, more fund managers and advisors are getting involved in sourcing, screening and reporting on investments that deliver measurable impact alongside financial returns.

Development finance institutions (DFI) are the original impact investors – we have been sourcing and managing commercial investments in emerging markets for economic and social impact over the past 70 years. In the process, we have developed substantial experience and expertise of relevance to impact investors, whether institutional investors, asset managers, philanthropic organizations or family offices. We also offer co-investment opportunities for investors seeking exposure to emerging market assets that offer measured impact, commercial returns, and rigorous attention to environmental, social and governance safeguards.

The EBRD is hosting a closed-door conversation between DFIs—EBRD, IFC, and CDC—and selected impact investors that will explain DFI approaches to investing for impact and identify opportunities for collaboration. The roundtable conversation will be held at EBRD’s London Office (1 Exchange Square) on 6 December, from 9:00am to 14:00pm, followed by a lunch.

This event is by invitation only.
