Multinational Nuclear Supplier Partnerships within the OECD

October 10, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm

The Global America Business Institute, Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, and Heritage Foundation will host a panel discussion, “Multinational Nuclear Supplier Partnerships within the OECD: Ensuring Relevance and Competitiveness in the Global Nuclear Power Market,” on October 10, 2018. The event will be held at the Heritage Center and will conclude with lunch.

Nuclear industries in countries guided by democratic and free market principles have been challenged by various factors, including escalating regulatory burdens, rising construction costs, adverse domestic power markets, and atrophying supply chains. Emerging state-owned, vertically-integrated vendors in Russia and China pose an additional challenge, as these countries actively support civil nuclear exports throughout the world as a means to achieve their broader economic and strategic objectives. The fact that civil nuclear exports often entail decades-long political relationships bestows a significant competitive edge to Russian and Chinese nuclear corporations, which are poised to dominate the global nuclear market at current trends. Given these circumstances, nuclear suppliers in the United States, France, Japan, and South Korea may seek to bolster their competitiveness by entering into enhanced multinational partnerships.
