Dateline 2017-09-08, NST:

Before Malaysia can consider embarking on developing nuclear energy, it has to consider many factors, including improving existing laws, as well as engaging the public.

Malaysia Nuclear Power Cooperation (MNPC) chief executive officer Dr Mohd Zamzam Jaafar said these factors include changing public perception, improving existing laws, and signing additional treaties pertaining nuclear energy.

“Although nuclear energy may be considered necessity in the long run, the public are concerns over the matter.

“Therefore, we must first engage the public and get their feedback before any decision could be made on the use of nuclear energy.

“We also need to improve our existing Atomic Energy Licensing Act 1984 as well to be part of treaties pertaining nuclear energy,” he said when met after the Public Information on Nuclear Energy seminar today.
