Chairman Lee said in a speech at a ceremony to launch the 2011 business year at the KONEPA conference room in Seoul on Jan. 3, "Our agency made remarkable achievements during the year 2009, dubbed 'The Year of Rebirth,' and during 2010, dubbed 'The Year of Another Leap' thanks to your ceaseless efforts. Now let us make the year 2011 a year for making a quantum leap, based on the achievements we have made so far." Looking back at past achievements, he said that KONEPA became the world's first nuclear power promotion agency to sign an MOU with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and it also joined the World Nuclear Association (WNA) and was praised each by the OECD/IEA and OECD/NEA for making remarkable achievements after receiving a briefing on KONEPAOs publicity activities.
