UK Reportedly Wants to Oust China From British Nuclear Energy Market

The Financial Times has suggested that Downing Street wants to remove China’s state-owned nuclear energy company from all future power projects in the UK. The report comes as there has been a cooling of relations between London and Beijing.

After a number of fall-outs between the two countries over political and economic issues, including the decision to force Huawei out of UK auction for the 5G network and London’s move to offer citizenship to Hong Kong protesters, Britain is increasingly unwilling to let China in on its home affairs.

Although China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) already owns 33 percent of the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset, England, the company’s future involvement in Britain’s nuclear energy projects will be restricted, according to reports.
