Investment Policy Review - The Sudan

image of Investment Policy Review - The Sudan

Sudan has a significant but largely unexploited potential to attract foreign investors, notably due to ongoing internal conflicts. The country is also facing the consequences of the secession of South Sudan, in particular the loss of the bulk of its oil reserve. In this context, reassuring and rebuilding the trust of investors is essential to attract them to Sudan.




The Sudan is a country of extraordinary economic potential. It enjoys a strategic location at the confluence of the two Niles and has direct access to the Red Sea. The third-largest country in Africa, its land is rich with mineral resources, notably gold, silver, iron, zinc, copper, chrome, uranium, gypsum, mica and other building materials, and benefits from favourable conditions for agriculture, including a varied climate, fertile soil, and water resources in the form of rains, rivers and underground water. The country's historical attractions, natural parks and seacoast are also assets for tourism development.
