Developing the Space Industry of Malaysia: the Policy Frameworks

Mustafa Din Subari, Azmi Hassan

Abstract


The space sector in Malaysia is quite developed, but in the absence of a standard framework of development, it is mainly driven by commercial and business forces. A space policy for the country is proposed with a focus on re-organizing the sector, namely, the local industry – emphasizing the downstream activities; the nation’s capacity building – the human capital, the necessary infrastructure, and most importantly, the governance – setting a domestic regulatory regime and a designated authority to ensure the responsible use of space in the country. This paper proposes the inclusion of several activities in the related sector as the downstream space industry in Malaysia.
