 IAEA Director Yukiya Amano delivered a statement during the opening session. He said: “We give high priority to assisting developing countries, through our Technical Cooperation programme, in using nuclear technology in areas such as cancer control, food and agriculture, and water management. These issues have been highlighted in our annual Scientific Forums. We have reduced the number of small TC projects and are focusing on larger projects with more impact in countries, or entire regions”.
