Transport in China has experienced major growth and expansion in recent years. Although China's transport system comprises a vast network of transport nodes across its huge territory, the nodes tend to concentrate in the more economically developed coastal areas and inland cities along major rivers. The physical state and comprehensiveness of China's transport infrastructure tend to vary widely by geography. While remote, rural areas still largely depend on non-mechanized means of transport, a modern maglev system was built in China to connect the city center of Shanghai with Shanghai Pudong International Airport. Airports, roads, and railway construction will provide a massive employment boost in China over the next decade.

The renminbi (Ab.RMBsimplified Chinese人民币traditional Chinese人民幣pinyin: rénmínbì; literally: "people's currency"; signcodeCNY) is the official currency of the People's Republic of China. The yuan (Chinesepinyinyuán) is the basic unit of the renminbi but is also used to refer to the Chinese currency generally, especially in international contexts where "Chinese yuan" is widely used to refer to the renminbi. The distinction between the terms renminbi and yuan is similar to that between sterling and pound, which respectively refer to the British currency and its primary unit. One yuan is subdivided into 10 jiao (Chinesepinyinjiǎo), and a jiaoin turn is subdivided into 10 fen (Chinesepinyinfēn). The renminbi is issued by the People's Bank of China, the monetary authority of China.

contributed by Ronna Fleischman China began to build nuclear power in 1970 and in 2005, the industry moved into a rapid development phase. Mainland China has 17 nuclear power reactors currently in operation and 28 under construction.  The main nuclear operators are China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) and China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group (CGNPC).  Additional reactors are being planned, including some of the worlds most advanced, to give a five- or six-fold increase in nuclear capacity by 2020. China has become largely self-sufficient in reactor design and construction, as well as other aspects of the fuel cycle.  Technology has been drawn from France, Canada, Russia, and most recently from the USA. Read More
