Saint John, New Brunswick (Thursday, July 8, 2021) – Moltex Energy is pleased to announce it has joined the Conseil économique du Nouveau-Brunswick (CENB), a group of businesses and business people committed to the economic development of New Brunswick and the Francophone business community.
“We are delighted to have Moltex join the CENB and contribute to our ongoing efforts to strengthen the New Brunswick economy and promote French business interests,” said Gaëtan Thomas, President and CEO, CENB.
“The business community in New Brunswick is large, influential and diverse,” said Rory O’Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer, Moltex Energy. “We are committed to engaging with businesses and business people in English and French, and ensuring all their interests are properly represented.”
New Brunswick businesses overwhelmingly support the development of small modular reactors (SMRs). They recognize the significant number of jobs this new clean energy technology will create, as well as the strong national and international export potential.
French is the mother-tongue of nearly one-third of the New Brunswick population. Moltex is committed to conducting its business in both official languages, and is actively working on a French translation of its website.
