JAIF International Cooperation Center

Message from President




Let me take this opportunity to express my excitement about joining JAIF International Cooperation Center (JICC). I have succeeded Mr. Takuya Hattori as president of JICC and would like to extend my greeting to everyone associated with JICC activities.

Established in 2009 aiming at becoming the one-stop contact point for nuclear power newcomer countries, we have made every effort to meet the demands of those countries, assisting in implementing a variety of cooperative activities such as human resource development (HRD) and safety improvement.

In response to the accident of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011, we have been trying to provide the latest and most precise information possible, and to widely share the valuable lessons learned from the accident with concerned countries.

Lately, we have also been actively engaged in playing a role of secretariat for nuclear HRD programs in newcomer countries under the Japan Nuclear Human Resource Development Network (JN-HRD.Net), and organizing “Regional Training Course on Providing Decisions Support for Nuclear Power Planning and Development (Mentoring Course) in Japan” in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Even after the Fukushima nuclear accident, trust and expectations towards Japanese technology, especially elements that contribute to improvement in nuclear safety, remain very high. Grasping well what emerging countries need and expect out of Japan, and cooperating closely with domestic and international organizations such as the IAEA, JICC will continue to move forward by making advancements in our activities to fulfill their trust and expectations. We would be grateful for your continued support and cooperation.

July 2015
Akio TAKAHASHI, President
JAIF International Cooperation Center
