WiN Japan Visits WiN IAEA

On Friday, 3 June 2011, seven members of WiN Japan, led by President Junko Ogawa, visited the IAEA. WiN IAEA organized a programme, which consisted of visits to the Incident and Emergency Centre (IEC), the Safeguards Radiation Safety Unit, the International Seismic Safety Centre (ISSC) and a guided tour of the VIC.
During a luncheon at the VIC Restaurant, the members of the delegation gave presentations on the Fuku-shima accident, which were followed by a question and answer session. 31 IAEA and CTBTO staff mem-bers, many of them WiN IAEA members, attended the luncheon and appreciated receiving first-hand in-formation from Japan. The WiN Japan delegation was then received by DG Amano, with whom they dis-cussed the situation at Fukushima and the important role of WiN Japan as the provider of factual infor-mation. In the evening, Gabi Voigt invited the delegation to a traditional Austrian restaurant.
