The Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Economy, Étienne Schneider will travel to New York in order to speak at the conference “The Promise of Space Resources: a Luxembourg Public-Private Initiative” organized by the Luxembourg Trade & Investment Office in New York on behalf of the Ministry of the Economy on Monday, June 5, 2017. The conference will provide most recent details on Luxembourg’s SpaceResources.lu initiative and on innovations in the space industry sector. With a focus on investment opportunities and financing of space exploration, expert corporate and investor insights will be provided.
The aim of the conference is to initiate a dialogue on the future opportunities and challenges the Luxembourg Government faces with its initiative, and to exchange ideas on other similar projects that are being developed in the U.S. and elsewhere. As the conference will focus on financing and investment, the strong financial hub in New York City offers an ideal environment to nourish this exchange.
Next to the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Economy, Étienne Schneider, other high-level representatives from leading space industry and corporate finance firms will take part, notably in two panel discussions specifically focusing on space industry and investor perspectives.
