14th Ministerial Level Meeting


Resolution of 14th FNCA Ministerial Level Meeting
December 19, 2013
Tokyo, Japan

We, the Heads of Delegations of FNCA member countries, the Commonwealth of Australia, the People's Republic of Bangladesh, the People's Republic of China, the Republic of Indonesia, Japan, the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, the Republic of the Philippines, the Kingdom of Thailand, and the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam,

1.

Recalling that the resolution adopted at the 13th Ministerial Level Meeting held in Jakarta in November 2012 encouraged the creation of networks between the nuclear technology applications sector and end users for peaceful use of nuclear technology, which, as one of the FNCA’s future roles, should contribute to economic growth of the member countries,
 

2.

Recognizing the importance of sharing the experience and lessons learned from the accident at the TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (hereafter “the Fukushima accident”) with the international community and welcoming Japan’s effort to continuously communicate such information with transparency
 

3.

Recognizing that based on the 13th Ministerial Level Meeting held in Jakarta in November 2012, the FNCA Study Panel held in Tokyo in August 2013 conducted a valuable discussion on nuclear infrastructure development of member countries including such topics as Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPR) in the Asian region, nuclear security and stakeholder involvement,
 

4.

Recognizing that, among radiation utilization projects that have good potential to contribute to development of sustainable agriculture, “Radiation Processing on Natural Polymers”, “Biofertilizer” and “Mutation Breeding” have reached the stage of practical use, however the achievements have not been commercially realized,
 

5.

Stressing that involvement of senior officials in charge of human resources development is important to strategically build human resources which are essential in promoting radiation utilization and peaceful use of nuclear energy and enhancing 3S (Safety, Security and Safeguards),
 

6.

Recognizing importance of synergies among projects for further sustainable development of the FNCA framework and for delivery of new outcomes,
 

Decided to work continuously toward:

1) Continuing to share lessons learned from the Fukushima accident, especially by way of the FNCA Study Panel, and pursuing further cooperation toward nuclear infrastructure development among FNCA member countries, which includes studies on such ongoing themes as stakeholder involvement, EPR and its regional collaboration and nuclear safety related infrastructure enhancement, and new themes such as safety, economics and waste disposal issues with SMR,
 
2) Encouraging a review of nuclear human resource development opportunities within each of the member countries through a workshop including senior officials involved with policy and planning human resources development, and budget allocations, to ensure the human resources development project can be carried out more effectively and beneficially,
 
3) Striving further to build a network with potential end users to accelerate the practical use and commercialization of  FNCA achievements in the radiation utilization area and consequently contribute to socio-economic benefits, in particular, in the sub-topic areas of Radiation Processing on Natural Polymers, Biofertilizer and Mutation Breeding, which have developed technologies that can be put into practical use in sustainable agriculture,
 
4) Encouraging each country to create a steering committee for each project and a meeting of Project Leaders to share information and enhance project activities, and to further pursue higher productivity of the projects and closer cooperation among different projects through that meeting.
 
5) Encouraging each country’s government and its nuclear stakeholders to build a nuclear security culture in line with international best practices as a response to nuclear security concerns arising in the world.
