The Master Plan prepared under the project entitled: “Project for Comprehensive Planning and Support for Urgent Development on Social Economic Infrastructure in Malakal Town in the Republic of South Sudan,” also aims at improving the infrastructural services in the nation.

It will be attended by senior National and State Government officials. The seminar is planned to brief the stakeholders of the process and the proposed targets for the Master Plan formulation.

Malakal is one of the third largest towns in South Sudan located strategically with links to Sudan to the North and to Ethiopia to the East of South Sudan.

Most importantly, Malakal is an economic hub of the Greater Upper Nile States with high economic development potentials, yet it has been one of the neglected towns.

The “Project for Comprehensive Planning and Support for Urgent Development on Social Economic Infrastructure in Malakal Town in South Sudan” commenced last year, said JICA.

It also aims to lay a firm foundation and a roadmap to achieve mid-term social economic infrastructure and human resource development targets in the town.
