Tokyo , September 22 (VNA) – Fifteen Vietnamese nuclear experts, who will work on the Ninh Thuan 2 nuclear power plant project, have recently graduated from a two-year training course in Japan .

The course was the first of its kind, held as part of a cooperation programme between the Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) and the Japan International Nuclear Energy Development (JINED).

EVN asked JINED to train 100 more students in nuclear-related degrees in the future, EVN General Director Pham Le Thanh said during the graduation ceremony on September 19.

That same day, another course began with nine new trainees.

The success of the training programme marked an important milestone in the partnership between EVN and JINED, he said.

Meanwhile, JINED Director Ichiro Takekuro attributed the success to the close cooperation between EVN and JINED, and the lecturers from Tokai University .

He expressed his hope that the two sides would continue to work together, with a view to developing strong personnel for Vietnam ’s nuclear energy project.

Tokai University Director Jiro Takano said he hoped the graduates would use their newly gained knowledge to make practical contributions to nuclear power in Vietnam .

Since 2005, the Japanese side has trained 246 Vietnamese nuclear power experts and organised a number of conferences with close to 400 participants.
