Dear Colleagues and Representatives of the Sector;
We, as the Nuclear Engineers Society and Sustainable Production and Consumption Association of Turkey, are proud to share with you that we will organize the "Istanbul Nuclear Plants Summit" in Istanbul in May 2014 with the full support of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources of Turkey, NGO's and under the leadership of Turkish academicians.
Turkey is obliged to implement and execute large energy projects considering the high demand for energy based on our developing economy, our geographical location, foreign dependency in energy and our position as a major transition hub for energy. Such projects to be carried out to prevent foreign dependency in energy require that all parties, who are specialists on the issue, come together.
This international Summit will bring together the international corporations desiring to invest in nuclear plants and the local companies desiring to work with such corporations as well as officials from public and local administrations. All stakeholders assessing the nuclear plants from different aspects will be able to learn the perspective of the Turkish public opinion thanks to this Summit as well.
We have great pleasure to host you in a city, which is must-see for everybody once in a lifetime, where the continents meet. A charming and amazing mixture of the oriental and western cultures, Istanbul has a unique identity with its liveliness and modernity, and bears the enthusiasm as well as the rich history of ten thousand years. Therefore, we have also planned quite attracting social activities for the participants of the Summit.
All these preparations for and effort to invite the most prominent speakers to this Summit result from our desire to hold a more scientific Summit, which is satisfactory for all stakeholders. Our expectation from you is to honor us by your active participation in our Summit.
