The Federal Government says it has no concerns about China expanding its use of uranium for nuclear power generation.

Australia’s mining industry is expecting China’s plans to build five more nuclear plants to create more opportunities for uranium exports.

The Resources and Energy Minister, Martin Ferguson, says the Government has an agreement with China on the safe use of Australian uranium.

“We will continue to export as much of our commodities we can, including uranium, to countries who are interested in purchasing our commodities,” he said.

“But obviously with respect to the issue of uranium, there are very clear demands from the Government… which guarantees the safe use of Australian uranium.”
