Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Mongolian delegation attended the 10th Anniversary International forum ATOMEXPO 2018, which took place in Sochi, Russia on May 14-16.

Initiated by Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom in 2009, the international forum was held under the theme ‘Global Partnership – Joint Success’, highlighting the importance of international cooperation in the development of the nuclear energy industry.

“We believe that world nuclear industry development as well as the climate problems solution depends on cooperation and joint work of all the world nuclear industry leaders,” said Kirill Komarov, First Deputy Director General for Corporate Development and International Business of Rosatom.

More than 3,000 delegates from over 60 countries participated in the anniversary forum.

By the invitation of Alexey Likhachev, Director General of Rosatom, G.Manlaijav, Secretary and Head of the Executive Office of the Nuclear Energy Commission and D.Dalaijargal, CEO of Mon-atom state-owned LLC, partook in the three-day event.

The Nuclear Energy Commission of Mongolia is responsible for coordination and formulation of all activities related to radioactive minerals, nuclear energy applications, development of research, radiation protection and nuclear safety, as well as expansion of international cooperation to enhance the socio-economic development of Mongolia.

Last February, the Commission signed a Memorandum of cooperation on the construction of a Centre of Nuclear Science and Technology in Mongolia with Rosatom Corporation.  

Mon-atom CEO D.Dalaijargal attended the ATOMEXPO forum for the second time this year. Having also attended the 9th ATOMEXPO in Moscow, D.Dalaijargal noted the importance of the forum in creating new business relationships, exchanging experience with world leading nuclear experts and obtaining up-to-date information about the global nuclear industry.

Mon-atom LLC was founded in 2009 to represent the Mongolian Government in all activities related to geological explorations and exploitation of radioactive minerals in Mongolia.

Mongolia adopted a State Policy on Radioactive Minerals and Nuclear Energy and Law on Nuclear Energy, which define the legal environment surrounding nuclear energy.

Based on Mongolia’s radioactive minerals reserve, Mon-atom LLC works with companies from France, Czech Republic, China and Russia.
