As Nuclear Power is a solution of clean, high efficient and reliable energy, it has been accepted by more and more countries and people all over the world.  Many countries carried out their Nuclear power development plan and started to construct the new plants in recent years.  When we talk about the NPPs New Build, the number of those plants in China is the biggest globally and the time schedules of most plants are going well.  This presentation will focus on the introduction of the NPPs under construction, the status of those projects, as well as the performance of the NPPs in operation in China.
