A nuclear research center, led by both China and UK, was launched in London on Wednesday with a total investment of 50 million pounds (62 million U.S. dollars).

The UK National Nuclear Laboratory and the state-owned China National Nuclear Corporation jointly funded the center for a period of five years.

"It is the first nuclear energy research platform supported by a Western government that is willing to cooperate with us. We will cooperate in advanced fuels and manufacturing, reactor decommissioning, radioactive waste treatment and nuclear regulations," said Xie Jiajie, vice president of China National Nuclear Power.

The UK-China Nuclear Joint Research and Innovation Center started in 2015 and is based in Manchester.

The cooperation is another important step marking China-UK cooperation in the nuclear power industry, after the Hinckley C nuclear power project signed in September.

Meanwhile, the British Prime Minister Theresa May has welcomed more Chinese investments to the country during a meeting with Chinese Vice Premier Ma Kai in London on Wednesday.

Both the Prime Minister and Ma agreed that China-UK ties are now in a "Golden Era."

Ma Kai traveled to UK to co-chair the eighth China-Britain Economic and Financial Dialogue with British Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond.
