The head of "Rosatom" called the most promising regions for cooperation
The General Director of the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom, Alexey Likhachev, in an interview with RT, told which regions are currently the most promising for cooperation.
“The Eurasian space is very important for us and the fact that our Uzbek partners are actively preparing to launch a nuclear project. In fact, this choice was made by Kazakhstan, we expect the launch of the block in Belarus. Russia has a very ambitious agenda for the construction of its own stations, so the Eurasian space, without a doubt, is a priority for the development of nuclear technologies. Of course, we are adding Asia here, ”he said on the margins of the Atomexpo 2019 forum.
Speaking of Asia, Likhachev mentioned China, India, the countries of Southeast Asia.
“Today North Africa, the countries of the Middle East, looks very attractive. The most advanced project we have here is a project in Egypt, ”the general director noted.
According to him, the company is in active negotiation with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan, and Turkey.
“I, too, would not discount Europe. As the development of nuclear energy projects is both Hungary and Bulgaria, and Finland, so is the development of non-energy technologies and our progress with Serbia, ”he added.
Earlier it was reported that Russia may take part in the construction of nuclear power plants in Bulgaria.
