I might have mentioned the China123 Agreement in another thread, albeit to hammer home to USAnians the value added jobs created by trading with China.

According to N.E.I. Director Lipman, the trade agreement has created 10s of thousands of valued added jobs and billions of dollars of exports of nuclear power plant equipment to China. Also, USAnians are teaching Chinese how to operate nuclear power stations safely.

Currently China has 22 nuclear power stations in operation with another 23 on the way. With China 123 in place USAnian hi-tech industries will lock in deals for all of them, clean sweep. Far as I know neither France nor Russia got a signed contract. Poland might have submitted its bid, but there ard no reports of it.

The nuclear power station to be built in UK will most likely use USAnian parts and with USAnian safe guards. China is probably passing on to UK lower prices through its negotiating power and economy of scale.

Last I looked, only 3 or 4 countries have the technology and know how to manufacture large container vessels for the core, UK used to be one of them.

I think UK made a good commercial decision, maybe a canny Scotsman with an array of networked 6th gen abacus figured it out.

If the nuclear reactor is designed and build underground, then it will be quite safe.  The nuclear power plant should also be build on man made island to enhace the safety.

The concern is whether China will use their control of the nuclear technology to harm England.

I don't think they will. They are co-investors only. The equipment will come from France and the U ...

China in return should be required to allow Western media and entertainment into China.  China can't improve if they are not allowed to hear new ideas.
