China Dalian International Economic and Technical Cooperation Group, was officially renamed CGN Nuclear Technology Development Company (CGNNT) yesterday.
CGNNT general manager Zhang Jianfeng was quoted by China Daily as saying, "Applied nuclear science in developed countries has formed a massive industrial chain - covering industry, agriculture, medical health, food safety, environmental protection and security." He added, "The industry in China, on the other hand, has great potential for further development as it has been less tapped compared with developed countries such as the US."
