In the margins of the Summit, Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, and Ben Martins, South African Minister for Energy, signed the South Africa/Euratom Agreement for cooperation on the peaceful use of nuclear energy, including in research and development, setting up the overall framework for political, technical and industrial cooperation.
