Forum participant’s opinion

«I was very impressed with organization and scope of IX International Forum on Industrial Safety. The idea to bring together experts from different industries and share information is excellent. I like to congratulate the GCE Group for organizing the Forum and giving the IAEA opportunity to advertise the IAEA safety activities, standards and services among participating organizations and experts.»
