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.
   
The group will sign a deal worth three billion dollars to supply nuclear fuel to China Guangdong Nuclear Power Corp (CGNPC), Les Echos reported in its Tuesday edition.
   
This would see the French firm supply 20,000 tonnes of uranium over the next 10 years, the report said.
