Welcoming the Atlantic Declaration, including the launch of a civil nuclear partnership (link), announced by The President of the United States and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, NIA CEO Tom Greatrex and NEI CEO Maria Korsnick said:
“We very much welcome the formation of the Joint Standing Committee on Nuclear Energy Cooperation. Our industries have a long history of cooperation and collaboration, and the US and UK have been working closely in recent times to ensure the framework established enables the development of the secure, reliable and clean power from nuclear that both of our nations need for the future.
“Building on work done by governments and industry at the G7 earlier this year, we particularly welcome the focus on collaboration to ensure civil nuclear fuel fabrication and supply capacity is in place in both our continents to reduce reliance on Russia. This is both an improvement in energy security and a significant economic opportunity for our nations and industries.
“We look forward to working with this new body to maximize the opportunities and deliver on the goals of long-term, sustainable energy security that is in the shared interests of the global community.”
