Hinkley nuclear project: UK govt faces questions about involvement of US export blacklisted Chinese firm

Telegraph 15th August 2019 The government faces renewed questions over its decision to allow a
state-owned Chinese firm to be involved in the UK’s power generation
programme after the business was placed on a US export blacklist. China
General Nuclear Power Group (CGN), which has partnered with EDF to help
fund a third of the £20bn cost of the nuclear power station at Hinkley
Point, was on Thursday added to the US commerce department’s so-called
“entity list”. The placement effectively blocks American firms from
selling products and services to the company without written approval.
