The Philippines and SoKor Discuss Future Nuclear Cooperation

August 2022

The Philippine Ambassador to South Korea, Ms. Mariya Theresa met with the executives from Korea Hydro and Nuclear power Co. Ltd (KHNP) to discuss future Philippines-Republic of Korea (ROK) cooperation on nuclear technology and renewable energy. Mariya Theresa affirmed the Philippines’ interest in focusing on a viable and sustainable energy plan and informed ROK that President Marcos Jr. himself expressed interest in pursuing nuclear technology and other energy cooperation platforms with South Korea.

KHNP is the largest power generator in Korea, producing one-third or around 28 percent of Korea’s domestic demand for power through a combination of nuclear power, hydropower, pumped-storage power, and new and renewable energy. It is also a long-time partner of the Philippines on energy-related activities, having led the feasibility studies for the safe use of the Bataan nuclear power plant and the Cagayan Eco Zone.

KHNP is an energy partner of 29 countries for the global power supply. Likewise, they shared that they are trying to support more experts in the nuclear energy sector.

The officials looked forward to further strengthening PH-ROK energy cooperation in the future.
