Next Big Future has a post about China's progress on molten salt reactors including at least one using thorim.

No details, but they plan to build a 2MW prototype with a thorium-uranium fuel cycle.

The Chines have the biggest reactor building program. It is natural for them to go for innovation. There is a strong urge to avoid more coal smoke also by the second biggest energy users and factory for the world.
Even the US designs are being initially built in China. Terra power are the next in line.

A number of forum regulars probably attended that conference announcement. It would be nice to hear their comments and opinions of the the chinese presentations, the reported manpower, and apparent accelerated progress.
