The Chinese government has emerged as a potential buyer of a multibillion-pound stake in Britain’s nuclear power plants, writes The Guardian. China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) is a state-run corporation possibly interested in buying a major stake in eight power stations, including Sizewell in Suffolk and Dungeness in Kent. The UK government has initiated a new national security test for foreign takeovers and there is general concern over China owning part of the UK’s critical infrastructure. The power stations are currently operated by EDF Energy, a subsidiary of the French company EDF, which is believed to be looking to sell off some of its shareholding.
