Bermuda is to reach for the stars in a bid to attract space-related business to the island, the transport minister said yesterday.

Walter Roban will travel today to the 34th Space Symposium in Colorado to represent Bermuda on a panel for “emerging space economies”.

Mr Roban said that the island was creating a legal and regulatory framework to draw “the next generation of commercial space activity”.

He added: “The Space Symposium is the leading event of its kind and billed as the premier global commercial, civil, military and emergent space conference.”

The symposium at the Colorado Springs Broadmoor Hotel feature commercial, government and military space industry professionals from more than 40 countries.

Mr Roban will share the stage with the director general of the United Arab Emirates Space Agency and the general director of the Mexican Space Agency.
