The ITA’s Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee will hold an open meeting May 1 at the Commerce Department headquarters building in Washington, D.C. This committee advises the ITA on the development and administration of programs to expand U.S. exports of civil nuclear goods and services, including how export policies, programs and activities will affect the domestic industry’s competitiveness and ability to participate in the international market. The May 1 meeting will be the first of the committee’s new term and will therefore include the selection of nominees for chair and vice chair, the selection of subcommittees and an overview of ITA programs in support of the U.S. civil nuclear industry. Members of the public wishing to attend this meeting must notify the ITA by 5:00 p.m. EDT on April 26.
