A visit from IAEA DDG

          On April 25, 2024, Ms. Pennapa Kanchana, OAP Deputy Secretary General, meets with Mr. Liu Hua, Deputy Director General and Head of Technical Cooperation Department, and Mr. Gashaw Wolde, Acting Director of TC Asia and Pacific Division, from IAEA. The meeting also includes key personnel from OAP and TINT and focuses on technical exchanges on project implementation and Thailand’s current involvement with NUTEC plastics which is one of IAEA’s flagship environmental projects. Possible development of small modular reactors (SMR) in Thailand is also a topic of discussion as it is viewed as a way to help produce clean energy.

            In addition, the IAEA team has an opportunity to meet with Mr. Permsuk Sajjapiwat, Permanent Secretary of MHESI, in a high-level policy meeting where technical cooperation between Thailand and IAEA is discussed.
