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.




UNCTAD serves, under its overall mandate on trade and development, as the focal point within the United Nations Secretariat for all matters related to foreign direct investment. This function was formerly performed by the United Nations Centre on Transnational Corporations (UNCTC) (1975–1992). UNCTAD's work is carried out through intergovernmental deliberations, research and analysis, technical assistance activities, seminars, workshops and conferences.
