More than 180 nuclear reactors are currently under construction or being planned to be built in emerging countries and other regions, comprising a 1-trillion-dollar (approximately 80 trillion yen) market worldwide. Demand for nuclear energy shows no signs of decline even in the wake of the Fukushima crisis, rekindling fierce competition in the international business arena.

I hope “emerging counties” do better job maintaining the reactors than TEPCO did.
