SINC 2023 – Day 2 – Timmermans evening summary

A little personal reflection of the amazing second day of the @Space for Island Nations Conference 2023 conference.

It is very inspiring to see how an initiative born at the @International Space University can turn a nation into a space faring nation. I am proud to see how @MSROmv is leading Maldives into the space era, bringing several national ministers and the country’s former president to the first ever space conference in Maldives.

I was very proud to have a good chat with Minister of Tourism Dr. Abdulla Mausoom about the specific benefits of space for tourism in the leading tourism nation of the world!
