China and South Africa have signed an inter-governmental agreement that may lead to the use of Chinese technology for new nuclear reactor units in South Africa.

Last month South Africa said it would sign strategic cooperation agreements with nuclear vendors and countries as it seeks to start the rollout of a nuclear new build programme. These agreements will allow South Africa to gain more understanding of technology offerings from different countries, a government statement said.
