Russia's nuclear agency Rosatom will help train personnel to develop South Africa's nuclear power industry on the basis of its educational programs, according to the agency's statement on Wednesday.

"A continuous improvement of personnel will allow South Africa to achieve sustainable development and competitiveness in the world market of nuclear technologies," the statement reads.

The initiative is part of Rosatom's memorandum, signed in July 2015 with the South African authorities, on cooperation in the field of professional development and short-term training programs.

According to the nuclear agency, these educational programs will allow South Africa to implement joint projects in the sphere of nuclear energy with African, as well as with other countries.

South Africa currently has two nuclear reactors generating 5 percent of its electricity. The government wants the nuclear energy industry to provide some 25 percent of the country's electricity needs by 2030.
