The memoranda were signed by Rosatom Deputy Director General for International Relations Nikolay Spassky and Rwandan Minister of Infrastructure Claver Gatete.

“Organization of personnel training programs for Rwandan nuclear infrastructure will be planned; development of close cooperation between profile educational institutions; organization of joint short-term programs; teachers’ training; development of specialized educational and scientific literature and exchange of students” are part of the package, Rosatom said.
