French nuclear energy giant Areva will conclude several major contracts with China during President Hu Jintao's state visit to France this week, including deals to construct two nuclear reactors and for the supply of nuclear fuel, media reports say.

AFP - French nuclear energy giant Areva is expected to announce a number of major Chinese contracts during President Hu Jintao's state visit to France this week, Les Echos business daily reported.
