Officials at Rosatom’s press service told Itar-Tass the agenda of the conference vocers construction of nuclear power facilities, their safe functioning, the handling of spent nuclear fuel and nuclear waste, and the prospects for development of the nuclear industry on the whole.
Rosatom’s leading subsidiaries are represented at the conference, too. Their list includes Atomenergoprom and TVEL, which is a monopoly manufacturer of nuclear fuel assemblies in Russia.
Unified stands will show Rosatom’s position on the world market of nuclear power and a summary of its offers.
