"The resumption of nuclear power generation in Japan is a good signal particularly for ASEAN countries which can absorb approximately 20 GW of nuclear power capacity, according to our estimates."
“Our specific needs include training in reactor analysis, in-core fuel management, and safety analysis, reactor operation and maintenance. Local expertise, skill and competency should be developed for efficient management and future operation. We are lacking expertise in nuclear physics, reactor physics, nuclear engineering graduates, both at graduate and undergraduate level needs to be addressed. More universities need to come forward with quality programmes to address this.”
