NNL Strategy Director, Chris Moore, attended the event and commented:

“I’m really pleased that our work in building trade links with China in nuclear research and development has been recognised in this way. Part of our role as the UK’s National Nuclear Laboratory is to ensure that we develop strong, beneficial ties with other nuclear laboratories around the world and it’s clear that we are successfully doing this in building our relationship with China.
