We realize the importance of the European space policy within the context of the main priorities of the Latvian Presidency. Along the lines with the decision of the Competitiveness Council in December 2014, the Presidency supports a comprehensive space policy.

Broader discussions on the future development of an integrated and comprehensive EU Space Strategy, bringing together the efforts of individual Member States and EU policy instruments. In the field of space policy, we follow the evolution of discussions in the Council on future relations between the EU and the European Space Agency, and possible lines of action on the way forward.

The Presidency recalls that the Galileo and Copernicus Programmes are expected to create substantial market opportunities for European industry and small and medium-sized enterprises through the development of downstream services and applications, which require continuous and sustained access to data. Therefore we see a need to continue this discussion. At the same time, it’s essential to continue the discussion on high resolution Earth observation satellite data in order to facilitate fair and reliable access and free circulation of data throughout the EU.
