Event Announcement



Tokyo, Japan, February 18-19, 2014

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 February 18-19 2014, in Tokyo, Japan. The Fukushima Recovery Forum will be a venue for U.S. firms to hear from Japanese Ministries and commissioning entities on plans for Fukushima Recovery and 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 water treatment and waste management. The U.S. Department of Commerce’s U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service (CS) will also be available in Tokyo to provide its export counseling services to participating companies.

The Fukushima Recovery Forum will take place on February 18-19, 2014. 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 January 15, 2014. More details on the event, including application information and fees can be found in the forum’s Mission Statement.
