MOSCOW, June 1. /TASS/. Russia’s Rosatom state-owned nuclear energy company is preparing a new contract with China, CEO Sergey Kirienko said at ATOMEXPO International Forum on Monday.
"We’re negotiating a new contract with China, quite successfully," he said.
The company’s Chief Financial Officer Nikolay Solomon said Chinese banks and energy companies are ready to participate in new Rosatom projects.
"It is important for us that Chinese banks and energy companies are showing interest and ready to participate, including financially, in our new projects," Solomon said.
Russia and China have been actively fostering cooperation in the nuclear sector for many years. As TASS reported in April, Rosatom plans to open its regional center in China in mid-2015.
In April, Rosatom and China National Nuclear Corporation CNNC signed a protocol on entering into discussions over possible cooperation formats on construction of nuclear power plants in third countries.
Last July Rusatom Overseas and CNNC New Energy signed a memorandum on construction of floating nuclear power plants.
