South Sudan Courts Foreign Investors

As South Sudan prepares for its independence on July 9, efforts to cement its diplomatic and trade ties have been enhanced in a bid to elbow reconstruction efforts.

The Western Bahr el Ghazal State Governor Rizik Zakaria Hassan and his Northern Bahr el Ghazal State counterpart Paul Malong Awan yesterday landed back from a tour of Spain and the United Arab Emirates where they signed investment deals.

Speaking to reporters at Wau airstrip upon arrival from Juba, the two governors said their visit was successful, adding that they expect strong bilateral relations with the two countries.

The leaders signed mining and petroleum exploration deals with companies in Madrid and Dubai.

“We are glad that our visit was welcomed by the two countries and we are optimistic that they will invest in South Sudan. Such a venture will create employment opportunities for South Sudanese”, said Hassan.
