Nuclear for better life
I am happy to welcome all of you to the 11th ATOMEXPO Forum; this is our second meeting at a new site – in Sochi. The forum is getting bigger with each passing year: it has transformed from a Russian nuclear industry event attended by foreign partners into an international industry discussion event for which Rosatom provides a platform.
The motto for the ATOMEXPO 2019 is “Nuclear for better life”. The global agenda for the use of atomic technology is expanding rapidly. In addition to being an eco-friendly and reliable source of energy that significantly contributes to combating climate change, the peaceful atom also facilitates the development of science, education, medicine, and agriculture. Thus, the widespread use of nuclear technologies has become an important factor in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It has become an integral part of the entire world community’s work towards improving the quality of life, reaching prosperity, and building a responsible attitude to the environment.
This year’s business programme will focus on how advanced nuclear technologies contribute to the Sustainable Development as well as other key issues for the global nuclear industry. I would like to note that the International Programme Committee put the forum’s business programme together for the first time.
Various partnership events by the international organizations have been planned as part of the ATOMEXPO for the first time. The exhibition will feature a wide range of ways to use atomic technologies, including those unrelated to energy. In addition, the ATOMEXPO AWARDS will be presented at the forum for the second time.
I hope you all have productive work and interesting professional interaction.
