WSJ: China Mulls New Steps on Nuclear Energy


June 4, 2012 Wall Street Journal print edition page A12. by Brian Spegele

"China's latest step toward relaunching its nuclear-power ambitions could play into efforts to stimulate the country's economy, according to analysts, even as officials face a public that has demonstrated worries about nuclear safety." 

Majia here: The article notes that Chinese officials last week approved the country's "2020 nuclear-safety strategy...."

It is believed that China may now approve new reactors. This program could be a veiled stimulus to China's economy.

Apparently China currently has 15 operating nuclear reactors ,
