Party and state leaders describe nuclear industry blueprint
There have been remarkable achievements over the past 60 years by nuclear industry workers through hard work and pioneering efforts, promoting the nation's nuclear industry and growing out of nothing and from small to large and making an outstanding contribution to national security and economic development. As a strategic industry, nuclear power's key competitiveness in line with the principle of safe and innovative development and peaceful use can write a new chapter in China's nuclear industrial development.
We need to continue our tradition while focusing on frontier technology to promote the "go out" policy for nuclear power equipment, ensure nuclear safety, and strive to build China into a powerful country in the nuclear power industry.
Premier Li Keqiang
Our technology must go out into the world.
