On 13 and 14 November IFNEC held its Global Ministerial Conference "Bringing the World SMRs and Advanced Nuclear" which gathered high level presentations from our member countries, industry and international organizations. The conference had Suzie Jaworowski as Mistress of Ceremonies, who after each session took the chance to reflect on each presentation highlighting their most salient remarks.  

On 14 November, the sessions were held at the White House. After IFNEC's Steering Group Chair Gadano’s warm opening remarks, US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry addressed the participants with enthusiastic words regarding the possibilities the nuclear sector has and will have in the near future.
