    In the past I have put forward information relating to China, for example, to show the amount of growth they are anticipating in building uranium reactors.

    To put this information on a global scale and to see what other countries are planning to do, I suggest you might like to read this article in its entirety.

    It is particularly relevant as it was prepared in 2008.



    Emerging Nuclear Energy Countries
    Briefing Paper # 102

    February 2008

    * Over thirty countries are actively considering embarking upon nuclear power programs.
    * These range from sophisticated economies to developing nations.

    Nuclear power is under serious consideration in over thirty countries which do not currently have it (in a few, not necessarily at government level).
    In Europe: Italy, Albania, Portugal, Norway, Poland, Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Ireland, Turkey,
    In the Middle east and North Africa: Iran, Gulf states, Yemen, Israel, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria, Morocco,
    In central and southern Africa: Nigeria, Ghana, Namibia,
    In South America: Chile, Venezuela,
    In central and southern Asia: Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Bangladesh,
    In SE Asia: Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand.

    In all countries governments need to create the environment for investment in nuclear power, including professional regulatory regime, policies on nuclear waste management and decommissioning, and involvement with international non-proliferation and insurance arrangements.

    In different countries, institutional arrangements vary. Usually governments are heavily involved in planning, and in developing countries also financing and operation. As emerging nuclear nations lack a strong cadre of nuclear engineers and scientists, construction is often on a turnkey basis, with the reactor vendor assuming all technical and commercial risks in delivering a functioning plant on time and at a particular price. Alternatively the vendor may be set up a consortium to build, own and operate the plant. As the industry becomes more international, new arrangements are likely, including public-private partnerships.

    Certainly makes me realise that Uranium is more than likely to increase in value over time, IMO.
