Uncertainty will remain about China's nuclear policy until next spring.

China suspension of approvals for new nuclear plants, announced less than a week after Fukushima, is still in place and a sweeping review of laws and regulations underway. Twenty-seven reactors are under construction in China today, more than 40 per cent of the global total, and about 10 more were on trackĀ  before the suspension. The new rules may be completed by next spring, the FT reports.
