The message reads, in part:
“Every year your forum strengthens its position as a large international industrial event where topical issues of the global nuclear industry are discussed and business contacts and prospective partnerships are established.
I believe that the topic of the current assembly, Nuclear Spring: Creating a Sustainable Future, is highly important and relevant. The development of the economy, social sphere, preservation of our planet’s natural balance largely depend on people’s guaranteed access to modern, reliable and safe energy sources, above all nuclear energy. However, advanced nuclear technologies relate not just to the generation of electricity, but also to science, space, medicine, exploration of Arctic territories and other spheres. And, of course, today, when the entire world is becoming increasingly concerned with the problems of environment, global climate change, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, it is nuclear energy as a clean, stable source of zero-carbon generation that can become the foundation for an effective energy transition in countries with different climatic and natural conditions.
I am confident that the forum will be held in a constructive manner, will help strengthen international relations, while the initiatives and proposals put forward by its participants will be translated into practical actions.”
