Multi-Sector Trade Mission to Sudan - April 2017
This multi-sector Mission will visit Khartoum and is open to all British exporters of goods and services.
Delegates will be guests at the Queen’s Birthday Party hosted by our Ambassador on 25 April. There will be a large Sudanese attendance and a lot of interest in the Mission.
The MEA’s objective is to introduce new British companies and particularly Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) to the market and to help existing exporters to strengthen their presence in Sudan.
We anticipate that the Federation of Sudanese Businessmen will be part of the programme and an important source of advice on contacts and priority sectors, namely: agriculture, healthcare, education and training, mining, renewable energies, engineering, bulk materials handling, telecommunications and financial services.
Mission participants must be British exporters of goods or services. They may be a UK registered subsidiary of a foreign company, providing they are actively contributing to the British economy.
For British companies who are serious about doing business in this country of limitless resources, the key is to think long term, but to ensure that they make connections before our competitors arrive in their droves.
Sudan went through an uncomfortable, but inevitable separation from South Sudan, now the Republic of South Sudan in 2011. It remains an Islamic state under the rule of President Bashir and has lost the bulk of its oilfields. However, it is not short of other natural resources and is seeking foreign investment in agriculture, power generation, water management and mining. Saudi Arabia and the UAE are big investors. The Blue and White Niles which converge at Khartoum ensure that it is a very fertile land.
