Sudan in the global economy: Opportunities for integration and inclusive growth

Synthesis paper Trade and Firms

In this paper, we outline evidence that could support government’s strategy to move Sudan towards an economic integration agenda that promotes inclusive growth. Specifically, we outline evidence on how the government could promote trade, investment, and integration. We also consider the role of the domestic banking sector in supporting this. We focus on:

  1. Domestic reforms needed to create an enabling business environment
  2. Tools and considerations to support greater economic activity
  3. International relationships and economic diplomacy
  4. The role of the financial sector
