Description

On July 7, 2008, the governments of China and Niger signed an agreement for the supply of 15-20 megawatt power units to be installed around the capital city, Niamey, and for technical assistance. The deal comes as Niger's cities have been experiencing power outages. However, it is unclear if the power units were actually received in Niger.
