The issue on the use nuclear power will be one among the key topics on the Asian Cooperation Dialogue on Energy Concern which Bohol will be hosting this August 7 to 10.

About 34 countries are expected to send their delegations to Bohol for this conference.

The aim of the conference is to find solutions and to come up with policies for resilent, sustainable and reliable energy.

Department of Energy Dir. Grace Villamayor and Department of Foreign Affairs Dir. Grace Villamayor were in town last Friday to coordinate with the provincial government.

DOE Sec. Al Cusi is expected to arrive in Bohol during the conference along with energy industry players and stakeholders in the energy industry.

For his part, Gov. Edgar Chatto said, “make Bohol your second home. Bring in more conferences.”

DOE USec. Wimpy Fuentebella, during his visit last week in Bohol, said the organizers of the conference chose Bohol since it has been a model of resilency.

Despite challenges, both man-made and natural, Bohol has managed to show off its resiliency and even able to recover better than before.

Villamayor said one of the key issues will be discussed in the conference will be the use of nuclear power.

She said there is a need to take a look and review the policies and laws regarding the use of nuclear power.

Nuclear power has been one of the leading power source that is both clean and efficient. However, it has been seen, this kind of power source may come with certain risks such as what happened in Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania, Chernobyl and the disaster in Fukushima in Japan. (DSA)
