Officials from CNNC Environmental Protection also had a video conference with officials at the Ansaldo nuclear power company in Italy on the day, during which Wu Xiujiang, president of CNNC Environmental Protection, talked about work resumption conditions in China and the progress being made in CNNC's major projects.

It has already sent masks to Spanish company NUSIM, according to officials.
