“We want to continue constructing the hydroelectric power plants in India with the help of our partners. This issue is being considered now,” Dmitriev told RIA Novosti. The CEO added that the construction of the two hydroelectric power plants in the Republic of Karelia, Russia, was the New Development Bank’s project in the world that reached the stage of implementation.
