Yu also attended the fifth meeting of the China-France Business Council, which was held on the same day at the Great Hall of the People. At the meeting, he reviewed the sound nuclear cooperation between China and France over the past 40 years, and said that in the future, Chinese and French nuclear enterprises should deepen nuclear technological cooperation, and promote the high-quality development of nuclear energy.
