Abu Dhabi – Mubasher: The Economic Balance Council “Tawazun” in the United Arab Emirates and “Yahsat”, the leading global satellite operator, signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a new company to develop and manufacture space communications solutions.

The Economic Balance Council stated, in a tweet on its official account on the social networking site “Twitter”, today, Tuesday, that the new company will be based in the UAE.

The council stated that the memorandum of understanding focused on protecting intellectual property rights locally, to increase national security and develop advanced technology.

The MoU was signed by Issa Al Shamsi, Deputy Director General of the “Yahsat Government Services” unit, and Mattar Ali Al Rumaithi, CEO of the Economic Development Unit at the Economic Balance Council, on the sidelines of the International Defense Exhibition and Conference “IDEX 2021”, according to the Emirates News Agency, “WAM”.
