Radio Australia, Australia – September 30, 2008

Cambodia’s government says the kingdom may develop its first nuclear power plant as early as 2020.

It says with hydropower and coal capacity expected to peak in the next decade, nuclear energy is the best option for the country.

A secretary of state for the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy, Sat Samy says Cambodia’s nuclear plans are in line with efforts by ASEAN to promote atomic energy among member states.

Asean energy ministers reached a joint agreement last year in Bangkok to pursue new sources of power for the region’s growing electricity needs.
