Khartoum — The Minister for General Education, said the education sector, and the technical education in particular, is the most affected by the economic sanctions that continued for two decades and which were announced lifted only four days ago.

She said she hopes that lifting of the sanction would help relaunch the march of these sectors and help improve the quality of education provided.
