Fifty-two professionals, primarily from the U.S., participated in the visit and the diverse group represented all geographical regions and all aspects of nuclear technologies. The presentation will address topics including current nuclear power infrastructure in China, plans for new nuclear power plants, and long-range plans for nuclear power development. Some of the sights of China will be featured as well.
