What people say

Margrethe Vestager

“If member states choose to invest in nuclear energy, the Euratom’s objective to facilitate the investment becomes an objective of common interest that the Commission should take into account in its state aid assessment”

Margrethe Vestager, Competition Commissioner, European Commission (source: POLITICO, 1 February 2018)

Yukiya Amano

“Nuclear technology helps countries to produce more food, generate more electricity, treat diseases such as cancer, manage water supplies, protect the seas and oceans and respond to climate change — and much more”

Yukiya Amano, Director General, IAEA (source: iaea.org, 21 March 2018)

Tom Greatrex

 

“It is essential, as part of the overall Brexit negotiations, that Euratom remains a priority for the government in seeking a comprehensive transitional agreement with the EU. Successful and timely conclusion to these negotiations is vital, to prevent significant disruption to the UK’s nuclear industry”

Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive, NIA (source: world-nuclear-news.com, 9 March 2018)
