  • New nuclear plants face public backlash

    While most Yeongdeok residents are believed to back the project on hopes to rejuvenate the local economy, some remain jittery, citing the region’s geological features that are fragile to natural disasters like earthquakes.

    In the wake of the Japanese debacle, Germany, Switzerland and Italy and other countries adopted plans to phase out or cut back their nuclear facilities.

    But Korea, which has an ambition as a new leader in nuclear power plant construction following a landmark export to the United Arab Emirates in 2009, clings to its standpoint. Japan has also no plan to abandon its stations.
