Investment in Sudan

Sudan is a great country with great potential, rich in resources, rich in culture and hundreds of pyramids with a unique geographical location. Sudan population is estimated to be over 41million, occupying an area of just under 2million km² of the African content, making it the 3rd largest country in Africa and the Arab world. The country is ideally situated between the western horn of Africa and eastern sub-Saharan region of the continent. The geographical location along with the vast diversification of its population have given the country a leading role amongst the African nations and the neighbouring Arab countries. Being one of the most diverse countries in Africa, Sudan has finally opened its doors to foreign investors providing unprecedented access to one of the very few untouched international markets. Sudan endured over 23 years of economic sanctions imposed by US President Bill Clinton, however, recently, the Trump administration started the process of lifting the last impending sanctions. This will unveil an astounding investment opportunity for investors. A country that will have a welcoming business climate and offer a wealth of resources and unexplored opportunities will finally allow investors to access one of the very few internationally untouched markets. Our experts and business leaders will dissect all aspects related to this unique yet exciting investment opportunity for both Sudan and investors and will also discuss the impact this could have on Sudan and the people of Sudan as the international community welcomes Sudan back on its stage.

Public Private Partnership (PPPs)

Paragraph 67 of United Nations General Assembly resolution 70/1 recognizes the role of the private sector in development and calls upon its contribution: “Private business activity, investment and innovation are major drivers of productivity, inclusive economic growth and job creation. We acknowledge the diversity of the private sector, ranging from micro-enterprises to cooperatives to multinationals. We call upon all businesses to apply their creativity and innovation to solving sustainable development challenges. We will foster a dynamic and well-functioning business sector, while protecting labour rights and environmental and health standards in accordance with relevant international standards and agreements and other ongoing initiatives in this regard […]”. The need for partnerships is recognized in the UN SDG 17Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development. This implies more qualitative and quantitative engagement of the private sector in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, an enhanced impact of the UN values and objectives, in particular related to sustainability, on the business models of private companies, advances in the engagement of businesses from corporate social responsibility to direct contributions to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals, or expansion of for-profit actors’ activities in areas which were usually addressed by public entities.
