“Construction of RNPP is an impulse for the development of Bangladesh’s economy. Today, we have managed to see that the equipment for the plant is being manufactured following state-of-the-art procedures. You (the Russian side) have been demonstrating the required perfectionism, and we are confident that all of the contractual obligations will be fulfilled”, noted Arch. Yeafesh Osman.
