Chinese authorities are planning to build more nuclear power plants along the eastern coastline with safety guaranteed.

They are also mulling the possibility of nuclear power plants in the inner part of the country.

The National Development and Reform Commission is also promising to encourage private investments to take part in the sector.

The decisions were released during a press conference of the NDRC this afternoon.

For more on this, the Beijing Hour's Spencer Musick spoke earlier with Lin Boqiang, head of Energy Economics Research Center at the Xiamen University.
