The meeting concluded with the adoption of a joint communique referring to the "Promotion of cancer treatments with radiation technology widely in Asia,", "Activation of organizational exchange of human resources among universities and research institutions" and so on.(Program)(Participants List)

(1) Welcome Remarks
At the beginning of the meeting, Mr. Takemoto Naokazu, Minister of State for Science and Technology Policy, gave a welcoming speech. In the speech, he mentioned (1) that FNCA has achieved significant results in a variety of important areas for the peaceful use of nuclear energy since its launch in 2000, (2) that radiation utilization in the medical field has been rapidly expanding in recent years and FNCA has made achievements, through its project activities, in the treatment of particular types of cancers found predominantly in Asia and has established and disseminated standard treatment procedures, and (3) the expectation that nuclear science technologies would be shared through the activities of FNCA, which will bring benefits to a wide range of economic society.

(3) Country Report
Representatives of the member countries reported on the progress of their nuclear politics and efforts, including the present situation of "applying radiation technology to medical care" and "developing human resources in the field of nuclear energy." Japan's report, which was taken note of by the representatives of the member countries contained the situation of restarting operations of nuclear power plants, promoting the development of innovative nuclear technology, proposing round table discussions on high-level radioactive waste, decommissioning the TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station and recovery of Fukushima, nuclear emergency preparedness, boosting radiation utilization in industries and other topics.

(4) Round Table Discussion
The theme of "Radiation Technology Utilization in Human Health and Medical Well-Being" was divided into three subthemes, "Policies and Issues in the Radiation Medicine Field," "Situation of Leading-Edge Technology for Radiation Therapy for Tumors" and "Present Situation and Problems of Radiation Medical Technology, Including Clinical Cancer Treatment Methods Originating in FNCA." Kazakhstan, Japan and Thailand introduced their case examples respectively for each subtheme, and opinions were exchanged based on the case examples. The discussion ended with a speech given by Mr. Sano Toshio, the Chairman of the Meeting and the Commissioner of Japan Atomic Energy Commission, on medical care and human health. In the speech, he said that, in order for people to enjoy the benefit of advanced medical care, it is necessary to establish a technology infrastructure that supports the safety of the medical care and a medical system that takes into account the expenses paid by the people themselves and this is a mission of the government, and it is important that the most advanced cancer therapy equipment including heavy particle beam therapy equipment be disseminated with the advancement of therapeutic techniques using radiation technology.

(5) FNCA Awards
Out of the 7 projects and a total of 89 teams in fiscal year 2018, the following Best Research Team (1) and Excellent Research Teams (2) were given awards:

·Best Research Team (1): Kazakhstan (Radiation Processing and Polymer Modification) - awarded for producing Super Water Absorbents (SWA) from carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) using electron accelerators and achieving good results in experiments in an arid region-
·Excellent Research Team (2): Vietnam (Mutation Breeding)
