A meeting of the heads of space agencies of the BRICS countries chaired by Russia was held in Moscow this week.

The heads of space agencies discussed current and prospective projects in a multilateral format.

‘This is the first time the Ethiopian side is participating in the meeting of heads of space agencies. We would like to learn more about the BRICS countries’ co-operation in the space industry. We are most interested in research projects,’ said Abdissa Yilma, Director General of the Ethiopian Space Science and Geospatial Institute.

“A very wide range of issues has emerged with the new BRICS member, Ethiopia. We will sign a memorandum and work out a roadmap on all matters of interest in the very near future,” Borisov said on the Rossiya 24 (VGTRK) television channel.
