ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the plan of the government of Thailand to build its first nuclear power plant. The effort will be headed by nuclear scientist Somporn Chongkum of the Office of Atoms for Peace in Bangkok. Thailand, with its sights set on building a 4,000-megawatt complex consisting of two plants and four reactors, is not alone in aiming to usher Southeast Asia into the age of nuclear power. Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines are in different stages of deciding and planning on using nuclear power.
