He presented the current situation in the field of HRD in nuclear science and technology, and emphasized nuclear knowledge preservation, gaining the other delegates' consensus. The participating countries agreed to put an emphasis on these five issues:
- Promotion of an exchange of information on Human Resources Development strategies in connection with nuclear knowledge management;
- Development of programs for attracting the younger generation to nuclear science and technology;
- Harmonization of different interests in technical areas;
- Formulation of an Asian network of higher education and training in nuclear technology for the preparation of the establishment of the International Nuclear University in the future;
- Cooperation and interaction with other regions for Human Resources Development.
The second roundtable discussion topic, "Sustainable Development and Nuclear Energy", was introduced by the leadoff speaker, Mr. Tetsuya Endo, Vice-Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission of Japan. He presented an assessment on the utilization of nuclear energy both to power and non-power applications as its contribution to the sustainable development in the modern society. He further added that the proper use of nuclear energy could realize the achievement of the 3E' s: "Energy Security", "Environmental Protection"and "Economic Growth".
His opinion gained positive responses from many delegates. Delegates recognized again the close relationship between energy supply and sustainable development. Many delegates expressed the view that nuclear energy would be one of the most important energy sources in the present and beyond. The relationship between the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and nuclear energy was discussed, and it was acknowledged that further studies including the proposed project could provide a firm platform for future considerations.
