Construction and operation of the nuclear power plant in Bangladesh will bring the Russian budget additional tax revenues of up to $8.4 bln, according to the Russian Government that will review signing agreement between the two countries for giving Bangladesh national export loan to finance construction of the nuclear power plant.
"According to the state corporation Rosatom, construction of the NPP will have the following positive socio-economic consequences for Russia: increasing high-tech Russian exports volume, ensuring the long-term load of more than 100 Russian industrial enterprises, involving more than 12,000 Russian experts in the work on the project, creating new jobs, providing tax revenues for the Russian budget in the amount of up to $8.4 bln until the end of the NPP operation," the government press service said.
It was reported earlier that two generator units of NPP Ruppur with a capacity of 1,200 MW under construction with the participation of Russia in Bangladesh are expected to be put into operation in 2022 and 2023, respectively.
