Third Way Applauds the Appointment of Alan Ahn to the Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee
WASHINGTON – Third Way is pleased to announce today that its Senior Resident Fellow Alan Ahn has been appointed to the Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee (CINTAC) at the US Department of Commerce.
As a committee member, Ahn will serve as a representative of Third Way to advise the Secretary of Commerce on the development and administration of programs to expand US exports of civil nuclear goods and services to help strengthen US competitiveness in the nuclear energy sector.
“I look forward to representing Third Way on CINTAC and helping advise Secretary Gina Raimondo to help secure US leadership and global competitiveness in civil nuclear,” said Alan Ahn, Third Way’s Senior Resident Fellow for Nuclear Energy. “I am honored to contribute to an effort that will not just bring good-paying jobs and economic opportunity to working communities, but will secure affordable, reliable, and secure clean energy for the U.S. and our allies to promote the safe and peaceful use of nuclear technology around the world.”
“Third Way is proud to see a forward-thinking leader like Alan Ahn join some of our nation’s top minds on civil nuclear policy on the Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee,” said Josh Freed, Third Way’s Senior Vice President for the Climate and Energy Program. “Alan has spent his career moving the needle on the rapid deployment of secure and reliable nuclear energy across the country and throughout the world. We now look forward to seeing how he and his CINTAC colleagues will work with Secretary Raimondo to utilize the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act to ensure the US can truly compete in the global civil nuclear marketplace. This will help the country streamline nuclear energy deployment, but more importantly bolster our security and the security of the free world and expand clean energy.”
