Director-General Osamu Motojima opend the second ITER Business Forum held in Manosque last week.
About 600 industrialists from more than 20 countries made their way to Manosque last week to participate in the ITER Business Forum. Organized for the second time since the inauguration of project, the two-day event was a useful platform for representatives of industry to meet ITER management and technical responsible officers and to discuss issues such as the design status of ITER components and the strategy for their procurement.

"The Business Forum is a necessary event in order to inform and involve industry at an early stage," stated the Director of Agence ITER France Jérôme Paméla in his opening address. "Without industry, there would be no ITER Project."

In his status report on the project, ITER Deputy Director-General Rich Hawryluk, head of the Department for Administration, also highlighted the importance of exchange with industry: "It is great to have an idea on paper, but only industry can make it become reality."
