G.S. Lee's last MAC meeting



Gyung-Su Lee's mandate as Chair of the ITER Management Advisory Committee (MAC) will end with the year 2011. Last Wednesday, after the MAC drafted the final words of its official report, ITER Director-General Osamu Motojima rose to thank and congratulate the "navigator" who had steered MAC for the past two years.

In a May 2010 Newsline interview, G.S. Lee explained that "in a big international project like ITER each party has its legitimate concerns and differing opinions. This is very normal. The challenge is to come up with a decision that is supported by all through faith and trust."

Up to the last MAC meeting he chaired from 18-20 October, this is precisely what he was able to achieve.
