Japan will continue nuclear power export marketing

10 August 2011

Japan's Prime minister Naoto Kan has approved a decision to continue to market Japanese nuclear technology to foreign countries, although he has said that Japan will look to reduce its use of nuclear power in the future after the Fukushima Daiichi incident in March.

In a statement, the Tokyo government said: "In case other countries wish to utilise our country's nuclear power technology, we should provide it by ensuring that its safety is of the highest global standards," according to news agency Agence France-Presse.

A Japanese consortium signed a deal to supply reactors for the Ninh Thuan II project in Vietnam last year.
