MCLEAN, Va., April 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lightbridge Corporation (Nasdaq:LTBR), a leading innovator of next generation nuclear fuel designs and provider of nuclear energy consulting services to commercial and governmental organizations, today announced that President and Chief Executive Officer Seth Grae will participate in a U.S. Department of Commerce trade mission to China and Vietnam to promote U.S. access to business opportunities in the international commercial nuclear industry.

Industry executives will meet with potential buyers, agents, distributors and joint venture partners.  In addition, industry leaders and senior officials from the U.S. Departments of Commerce, Energy, State and the White House are scheduled to meet with Chinese and Vietnamese government officials on civil nuclear energy policies.  The trip is set for May 17 to May 23, with stops in Hanoi, Vietnam and Beijing, China, as well as at a nuclear power plant in Sanmen, China.
