JAPAN-U.S. DECOMMISSIONING AND REMEDIATION FUKUSHIMA RECOVERY FORUM
Tokyo, Japan September 9, 2013
The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy, is organizing a Japan-United States Decommissioning and Remediation Fukushima Recovery Forum (“Fukushima Recovery Forum”) on September 9 2013 in Tokyo, Japan. The Fukushima Recovery Forum will be a venue for U.S. and Japanese firms to share experiences, expertise, and lessons learned in remediation and decommissioning, including on work underway at Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station, and in Tohoku, the area affected by the accident at Fukushima. U.S. firms will also be given an opportunity to network with Japanese firms and identify potential business partners. ITA hopes that this cooperation between the U.S. and Japanese private sectors will lead to solutions that will enhance Fukushima recovery efforts. ITA is seeking the participation of a maximum of approximately 25 U.S. companies that produce technology or provide services in the decommissioning or remediation sector, including waste management. The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Commercial Service will also be available in Tokyo to provide its counseling services to participating companies. Interested firms may also participate in a possible optional visit to the Fukushima region.
The Fukushima Recovery Forum will take place September 9, 2013. The Forum will consist of presentations on the status of the work underway Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station and in Tohoku, breakout sessions for discussion about specific aspects of the work taking place, and networking opportunities for U.S. firms. Applications are due no later than July 31, 2013. More details on the event, including application information and fees, will be issued as a Federal Register Notice shortly.
