Cooperation between the state and the private business helps develop the space industry
These two realities cannot be contraposed: so-called new space represented by these daring, beautiful, interesting initiatives, and so-called traditional space, which is conservative and public. They are not opposites; in fact, one cannot exist without another. There is no private structure that could build a business, creating the industry and at the same time developing the infrastructure — Dmitry Rogozin, General Director of the Roscosmos State Corporation for Space Activities.
If we want to achieve our goals, we cannot rely exclusively on state companies and large corporations – we need efforts from everyone, we need all our intellectual potential. If we involve various private enterprises, we will be able to make a technological breakthrough in the space industry, especially in developing new production methods and technologies — Zhijian Wu, Chairman of the Management Board, China Space Foundation.
Commercial interest is being developed for the market of space services. In this case technologies of public-private partnerships and concessions can be used as one of financial stimuli and effective mechanisms of technology and market development. The main thing here is not attraction of extrabudgetary financing, although it is important; it is the fact that the state can successfully transfer the risks of complicated processes to private partners that can efficiently manage them — Igor Snegurov, General Director, VIS Construction Group (VIS CG).
