Join us for an interactive discussion with a panel of leading experts on the issue. The speakers will discuss the achievements made so far and the next steps in establishing the fuel bank as well as multilateral approaches to the nuclear fuel cycle (MNAs) – assurances of supply and non-proliferation.
