Australian government has said that Australia will establish a National Space Agency to grow its space industry.

The nation is one of the only developed countries in the world that not to have a space agency.

Acting Industry Minister Michaelia Cash said it was "crucial" that Australia capitalised on the rapid growth of the global space industry.

It follows a domestic industry review which had called for a dedicated body to be established.

"The agency will be the anchor for our domestic co-ordination and the front door for our international engagement," Cash said.

Political and industry leaders hope it will lead to thousands of new jobs.
