ABSTRACT
The article discusses the construction of nuclear power plants in some underdeveloped countries. Accordingly, the need for some additional power is more pressing in the underdeveloped areas. However, it is claimed that it is not such an easy task because they have to construct small units or middle-size power plants first before they put up larger centers and plants. Simply put, it is hinted that it is imperative on their part first to develop their own natural energy resources before they use a novel source of energy that has to be paid for entirely in hard currency. It would mean that the acquisition of nuclear power plants will not only vast amounts of foreign exchange but also technical assistance on an inter-governmental basis.
