Recalling that the resolution adopted at the 14th Ministerial Level Meeting held in Tokyo in December 2013 resolved to continue pursuing further cooperation toward nuclear infrastructure development among FNCA member countries and accelerating the practical use and commercialization of significant FNCA achievements in the FNCA participating countries in the radiation utilization area, and recognizing that effective implementation of the 10 FNCA projects and the FNCA Study Panel has brought benefits to the member countries in the past year,

2.

Extending appreciation to the Vietnam Atomic Energy Institute for hosting the 6th FNCA Study Panel on Nuclear Energy in ugust 2014 and recognizing the importance of the occasion where experts and senior officials of the member countries shared nowledge and experiences in priority matters in nuclear infrastructure development, such as Technical Support Organization, Emergency Preparedness and Response, Small Modular Reactor and Stakeholder Involvement,
 

3.

Recognizing the fruitful discussion and conclusion regarding Human Resources Development (HRD) policy and promotion of the cooperation in HRD during the workshop of the HRD Project held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in July 2014 with the participation of the senior officials from the member countries,
 

4.

Recalling that the 14thMinisterial Level Meeting recognized the importance of nuclear security culture, and appreciating that the FNCA project on Nuclear Security and Safeguards successfully began utilizing the FNCA website to share good practices for nuclear security culture, and that the Integrated Support Center for Nuclear Nonproliferation and Nuclear Security (ISCN) of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) successfully conducted the training course on nuclear security culture for the participants from Asian countries, in cooperation with the IAEA,
 

5.

Recognizing the efforts of the Research Reactor Network Project to contribute to addressing the potential serious shortage of Mo-99 supply in FNCA member countries,
 

6.

Appreciating the leadership of Australia at this Ministerial Level Meeting to conduct a proactive roundtable discussion on the Strategy for Application of Multi-Purpose Research Reactors,
 

Decided to work continuously toward:

1)

Encouraging FNCA Ministerial Level leadership and coordinators’ active involvement in designing the FNCA’s future direction and program in order to further advance the FNCA’s 15 years of achievement in infrastructure building of nuclear power, applications of radiation technology for better medical care, more productive agriculture, improved industry and environmental protection, and improved safety and security,
 

2)

Launching the 4th phase of the Study Panel on Nuclear Energy, building on the   achievements of the 3rd phase, focusing on policy matters, technical challenges, and effective international cooperation on nuclear energy applications and development in both nuclear power and nuclear applications, and organizing the new Study Panel and the Coordinators Meeting back-to-back,
 

3)

practices by use of the FNCA website, with the recognition of the importance of nuclear security in the Asian region where further development of nuclear utilization is expected,
 

5)

Encouraging the senior officials of the relevant member countries to strengthen linkages with their respective stakeholders, including relevant ministries, in order to enhance the application of the significant tangible outcome of the projects of
mutation breeding, bio-fertilizer and radiation processing of natural polymers for improving agricultural production,
 

6)

Strengthening efforts to make the high performance research reactors in the region available to users, collaborators and trainees in other regional countries, for example by facilitating exchange of samples and opening opportunities for early career researchers to access facilities and share expertise across the region,
 

7)

Continuing to share information concerning the demand for and supply of molybdenum-99 and scheduled reactor outages, particularly in the light of future planned increases in production capacity in the region.
