[Sponsored Report] Nuclear energy on the agenda

The Korea Nuclear Energy Promotion Agency (Konepa) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will host a workshop to promote public understanding about the topic and to introduce a new nuclear power plant from today until Friday at the Jamsil Lotte Hotel in Seoul.

With the Fukushima’s nuclear disaster in March, the sustainability of nuclear power plant policies is still causing controversy. The gathering will provide a good opportunity to discuss and exchange views on ways of communicating and promoting public understanding on the matter, which is a necessity when pushing ahead with the introduction of a nuclear power plant. With the gathering, KONEPA will have a chance to further promote its nuclear power plant technology since exporting a nuclear power plant to the UAE. In addition, it will discuss ways to promote public understanding, which is one of the biggest impediments when a country introduces or expands a nuclear power plant.

About 26 public relations and information related experts with more than 5-years of expertise in the nuclear power plant business from 14 countries that are expected to introduce nuclear power plants in their countries, including the UAE, China, Japan and France, will be present.

The participants will take a field trip to nuclear plants including Kori Nuclear Power Plant.
