TAIWAN, JAPAN SIGN NUCLEAR SAFETY COOPERATION AGREEMENT
Taipei, May 26 (CNA) The Nuclear Science and Technology Association (NUSTA) of Taiwan and the Japan Nuclear Energy Safety Organization (JNES) signed an agreement Wednesday to promote bilateral cooperation in nuclear energy control and safety.
During a ceremony held in Taipei, NUSTA Chairman Lin Ying inked the agreement on nuclear energy safety and technological cooperation with Hirofumi Hagihira, a JNES senior official.
According to an official from the Cabinet-level Atomic Energy Council, the signing of this agreement was the result of strenuous efforts by the Republic of China representative office in Japan.
The NUSTA is a non-profit organization set up in 1994, with the aim of promoting nuclear energy technology applications, nuclear energy industrial investment and development, as well as technological exchanges and cooperation with foreign countries.
The JNES was founded by several nuclear energy and related equipment inspection companies in October 2003 to offer technical assistance to Japan's nuclear energy safety maintenance agencies in nuclear safety analyses and emergency management.
