UAE and Azerbaijan in bilateral talks over satellites and high tech

The UAE and Azerbaijan have agreed to work together to develop their satellite communications and high-tech industries. Representatives from the two countries signed an agreement in Baku last week in which they specifically signalled their intention to pool the resources of  their Azerspace-1 and Emarsat satellites; and to strengthen ties and knowledge sharing arrangements between Azerbaijan’s High Technology Park and the UAE’s Media and Internet Cities, the Dubai Silicon Oasis and Masdar. They also flagged up the possibility of the two countries working together in the fields of e-government and the fight against cybercrime. Azernews
