OTTAWA, Nov. 15, 2013 /CNW/ –

Canada’s nuclear industry will gain significant benefits from the signing of the Nuclear Cooperation Agreement between Canada and Kazakhstan earlier this week according to the Canadian Nuclear Association.  The CNA said the agreement is an important part of the Government of Canada’s efforts to strengthen Canada’s prosperity and create employment through export trade initiatives.

“The Canadian Nuclear Association is supportive of Canada’s international trade and investment initiatives in the uranium mining sector,” said CNA president Dr. John Barrett.  “This agreement will provide access for members of Canada’s nuclear industry to Kazakhstan’s growing nuclear market and allow our industry to export controlled nuclear materials, equipment and technology which will create jobs and bring economic benefits to Canada,” concluded Dr.  Barrett.

The agreement is expected to come into force following respective domestic processes.
