Abstract

[Extract] Australia's prime minister Tony Abbott is set to sign a deal with India that will allow the export of uranium to the country.

There are concerns that some of the uranium will be used to produce nuclear weapons in India. It's not likely, though the possibility remains. Critics have also pointed to poor regulation and the lack of transparency in India's nuclear industry.

But Australia can play a bigger role in improving India's nuclear industry than just exporting uranium. It can also provide expertise in risk governance and communication.
