Greeting from the Mayor of Riga:
Globalization of economic processes in the modern world demands not only new principles of economic relations, but also qualitatively new systems of global monitoring of natural and man-made changes that have supranational character today and may become sources of irreversible processes for all humanity. The „Space and Global Security of Humanity” Symposium is one more step on the way of understanding of the importance of decision of creating a common ecologic security of Space with the use of modern scientific achievements and aerospace technologies potential.
Riga always had its relation to space. Riga was a motherland of such great researchers as Fridrih Tsander and Mstislav Keldysh whose contribution to the development of astronautics cannot be overestimated
I am sure that traditional hospitality of our city and also the experience of conduction of many international forums will favour a productive work of the Symposium participants in solving problems of space research development and its utilization for the welfare of science and progress.
Mayor of Riga
