China's nuclear power industry is poised to get back on track now that the government has lifted a moratorium on new nuclear projects imposed in the wake of Japan's Fukushima disaster in March 2011.

Compared with Western countries, which have been developing nuclear energy for a long time, nuclear power still accounts for a small share of China's power generation, said Sun Qin, chairman of China National Nuclear Corp, a State-owned energy company that runs more than 40 percent of China's nuclear sites.

His comments came during the 18th Communist Party Congress in Beijing on Nov 12.
