10:02:43 Soundbite by Günther Oettinger (in ENGLISH): ITER is a really global project. Maybe it is the most important global project to develop new technologies, to produce electricity. It is a partnership between Japan, China, India, South Korea, Russia, United States of America and the European Union. 00:00:28
10:03:11 General view of the construction site 00:00:05
10:03:16 Soundbite by Geneviève Fioraso (in FRENCH) saying that this is a tremendous opportunity for scientists from around the world to gather on a project they could not achieve alone and there are few projects that mobilise science, expertise, intelligence of scientists from around the world at the service of humanity because they will imagine a new energy, cleaner, with no radioactive waste, a low-carbon energy, so this is good for the planet. 00:00:25
10:03:42 General view of the construction site 00:00:02
10:03:44 Soundbite by Osamu Motojima (in ENGLISH): The accelerated ITER project is very important so the construction over the next level will start at a 1.5 meters concrete floor and, then, a lot of civil work will start and building is necessary for the sighting duration so building is the critical pass. 00:00:23
