Purpose: As a result of political instability, corruption, mismanagement and maladministration since independence, the Sudanese economy was run down and the industrial fabric of the country dismantled. This paper is a contribution towards re-building the Sudanese industrial sector.
Design/Methodology/Approach: A qualitative approach based on theoretical analysis and critical assessment was used. The raw data were collected from official sources in Sudan as well as reputable international organisations.
Findings: It was demonstrated that industry can increase the value of the raw materials many times, consequently improving economic performance. Formulating industrial strategy, policy and planning to guide the industrialisation process is key. A comprehensive path to industrialisation
Originality/Value: The systematic approach to promote industrialisation as a key tool to fight poverty and achieve high economic growth was unique
and has not been addressed in this way in the literature so far.
Practical Implications: Adopting the recommendations of this paper can help Sudan to achieve sustainable economic growth and improve the standard
of living for its population.
