Growing pains still felt in China as output lags behind industrial demand

China`s electricity output in the first half of 1994 rose 11.3 percent to 437.4 billion kWh and the climb is expected to continue through the end of the year, with a record 900 billion kWh projected at the close of 1994. Despite the country`s ever-increasing output capabilities, output is not meeting the needs of industry and power failures are frequent. Demand during the first half of the year grew between 22 percent and 35 percent in the southern portion of China and plans are being made for a second nuclear plant in Lingao and for a generator in Yangjiang.
