VISIT South Sudan
The Republic of South Sudan is the world’s youngest nation. It is the 193rd member state of the United Nations and the 54th member state of the African Union. The country gained independence on 9th July 2011 following a self determination referendum in which the citizens overwhelmingly voted for total autonomy from the then Sudan. The referendum, conducted in January 2011, was one of the provisions of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) signed in 2005. The CPA ended one of Africa’s longest civil wars in which many lives were lost. After emerging from decades of neglect and discrimination, the country is now putting all its efforts and resources to nation building.

His Excellency Salva Kiir Mayardit is the President of the Republic of South Sudan, chairman of the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Movement (SPLM), and the Commander-in-Chief of the Sudan Peoples’ Liberation Army (SPLA). President Kiir replaced the late Dr Garang as leader of the then Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS) and First Vice President of the Republic of Sudan when the latter perished in a plane crash on 30 July 2005 after being in office for barely three weeks. He was sworn into the office of First Vice-President of the Republic of Sudan on 11 July 2005 in Khartoum. H.E. Kiir is a founding member of SPLM/A and was a close comrade-in-arms with the late Dr Garang since the inception of the liberation movement in 1983. He rose through the ranks to become the second in command of the movement and the army. He was actually the leader of the SPLA – the military wing of the movement. Due to his close comradeship with the late Dr. Garang, he is perceived as the embodiment and assurance of the future of the peace agreement spearheaded by the fallen hero. Indeed, many political analysts and opinion leaders worldwide describe him as the Biblical Joshua who took the mantle of leadership from Moses just as the Israelites were on the verge of entering Canaan and capably established the then fugitives in the Promised Land.

Invest in South Soudan
Given the many years of civil war, South Sudan is literally being built from scratch. The road network, housing, banking sector, insurance, schools and other amenities in the huge country all need urgent attention and the focus is on the donor community, the government, and above all, commercial investors.
South Sudan is opening up to investment and private sector participation across a range of economic sectors. In addition to the priority sectors identified above, the government has designated the aforementioned and the following sectors as priority for investment:
kEYS SECTORS & PRIORITY
Agriculture & Agribusiness
South Sudan’s agricultural potential begins with over 28 million hectares of arable land available for farming. This land offers significant opportunities in animal husbandry and in a variety of crops. With ample water and sunlight and a location in the heart of Africa, South Sudan is well positioned to meet increasing demand in local, regional, and global markets. Agricultural and food
imports nearly doubled between 2006 and 2010 from $138 million to $262 million. As incomes and purchasing power rise, local demand will continue to increase and provide local outlets for agricultural goods, especially staples. The country is divided into six agro-ecological zones, each of which offers a unique climate, soil type, and solar radiation, creating opportunities across a broad range of valuable commodities.
Energy and Mineral Resources
South Sudan’s rich and largely untapped mineral resources offer unlimited potential for investors. South Sudan’s known oil reserves and recent independence create a unique opportunity for firms to establish an early presence in one of the world’s newest oil producers. The government, primarily through the Ministry of Petroleum and Mining, has taken steps to attract investment and
ease bureaucratic barriers for the industry. South Sudan’s proven reserves surpass 1.1 billion barrels, ranking it among the largest reserves in sub-Saharan Africa. The country produces Nile and Dar oil blends, which are in high demand in the Asian marketplace. Energy generation resources are also abundant, from natural gas and oil to major rivers, consistent wind and year-round sunshine. With the Nile River defining the landscape, hydroelectric power generation has high potential. Potential also exists across a network of tributary rivers.
Livestock, fisheries and Forestery
South Sudan presents a unique combination of livestock, fisheries, and forestry activities, which are marked by ample opportunity for market expansion and long-term growth. Livestock producers benefit from abundant natural pastures and fresh water. An estimated 12 million head of cattle—three varieties are particularly well suited to South Sudan’s various conditions—and 11 million sheep and goats are supported in Upper Nile, Bahr el Ghazal and Eastern Equatoria.
Fish are naturally abundant in the Nile, Sudd wetlands, and network of freshwater lakes and rivers. Conditions present significant opportunities for freshwater aquaculture.
