Von der Leyen is focusing on the EU Space Law

In her State of the Union address, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen declared the EU Space Law to be one of the most important priorities for the upcoming year 2024.

I will continue to advocate that factors such as sustainability standards in space are finally duly addressed. To make the EU Space Law comprehensive and fair.
