The China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) was established on 16 September 1988 by a Chinese government decree. CNNC's president and vice-president are appointed by the Premier of the State Council.

However the CNNC is a self-supporting economic corporation, not a government administrative body. It oversees all aspects of China's civilian and military nuclear programs. According to its mission statement, it 'combines military nuclear weapons production with civilian production, taking nuclear industry as the basis while developing nuclear power and promoting a diversified economy.' CNNC is a nationwide industrial conglomerate integrating science, technology, industry, and international trade.
