A delegation of Sudanese government and state ministers arrived in Dubai on 13 February on the first stop of an international tour to encourage private investment in the country. ‘We’re conducting a series of investment promotion activities, in particular with countries which already have good relations with Sudan,’ State Minister of Investment Elsimaih Elsideeq Alnur told the Sudan Development Programme Summit. Alnur proposed Sudanese and Saudi Arabian investors form a $10 million investment company and GCC investors and Sudanese businesses establish a holding company to invest in different sectors. ‘We’re endeavouring to attract big and small investors,’ Alnur said. ‘We have a one-stop-shop policy to encourage investment in an unprecedented manner.’ The policy aims to reduce the level of bureaucracy experienced by foreign investors. ‘The longer the procedure, the worse the corruption,’ Alnur told MEED.
