Ambassador Kirk Expresses Support for the President's National Space Policy
United States Trade Representative Ron Kirk expressed his support for the National Space Policy released today by President Barack Obama. The Policy places renewed emphasis on the U.S. Government’s use of commercial space capabilities. These capabilities will further strengthen the commercial sector and make it more competitive internationally.
USTR will continue to focus its efforts on ensuring that the country’s trade commitments for space-related goods and services provide new opportunities for the commercial sector. At the same time, USTR will continue working to ensure that our private space launch companies encounter a level playing field when competing against government-owned providers in the international market.
