Investment Conditions

The environment is a strong factor in the decision making process of the investor. The government is cognizant of this fact and has taken measures to make the climate conducive for foreign and regional investment. In place are a number of programs that seek to resolve issues that threaten the security in the country. The last frontier is Darfur, for which the president has issued decrees that mandate the building of an infrastructure upon which economic development would then be possible. Some of these Infrastructural projects are the following.

The availability of a viable banking sector, insurance sector, auditing, financial, technical and legal consultancy will also prove crucial in this respect.”
