EAEA Chairman's Statement

Egypt had very early, the vision to foresee the importance of embarking into the atomic age, and the vital role of the peaceful atomic energy applications in her development programmes. The Egyptian Atomic Energy Commission was established in 1955. It then was developed over years to be the country's leading institution in promoting the peaceful applications of nuclear science and technology in practically all aspects of human life in Egypt. This covers fields of health, food, agriculture, environment, water resources, oil and mineral resources and a good spectrum of the industry.

In the past two decades, the Egyptian Atomic Energy Authority (EAEA) has embarked into the implementation of big nuclear projects, aiming at maximizing the practical peaceful applications of nuclear technology. This included Egypt's second multipurpose reactor, the cyclotron accelerator, advanced irradiation facilities... etc.
