At the China Institute of Atomic Energy, a pine tree was planted to symbolize longer and closer cooperation between China and the IAEA. The director general said it is his hope that we come together to celebrate the 40th anniversary of China's accession to the IAEA next year. Here he visited the China Advanced Research Reactor and a proton cyclotron.


Witnessed by Grossi and Zhang Kejian, chairman of the CAEA, the CNNC signed two cooperation documents with the IAEA. Besides, Tsinghua Tongfang under the CNNC donated two pieces of nuclear security detection equipment to the IAEA.
