The nuclear industry suppliers forum, Atomex Asia 2014, will be held here on Wednesday and Thursday, with the attendance of representatives from Vietnam and international energy agencies, as well as the leading nuclear companies in Asia, said organisers in a press release on Tuesday.

Atomex Asia 2014 will have two primary sections: plenary sessions and exhibition. The discussions are planned on the prospects for the development of the nuclear energy in Southeast Asia such as reactor technology and safety control, localisation and requirements for atomic industry suppliers, personnel training and insurance of public acceptance.

At the exhibition, suppliers will present their products and services directly to the customer’s representatives and seek new partners for cooperation on energy development.

Industry Suppliers Forum Atomex is a series of annual events aiming to facilitate talks and cooperation among nuclear suppliers organised by ROSATOM all over the world since 2011.

Sideline events will include a painting exhibition on “Energy for harmony: nature around nuclear power plants” and movie shows on nuclear power technology.

According to ROSATOM, more than 340 Vietnamese students have undertaken courses in nuclear technology in Russia in 2014-2015. In 2014, 150 Vietnamese experts completed training courses at two reactors of Russia’s Rostov nuclear power plant.

Vietnam and Russia have since 2010 signed agreements and contracts on building a nuclear power plant with two reactors and a nuclear research and technology centre in Vietnam.
