Sudan Now Open for Business

For the first time since sanctions were imposed in 1997, Sudan is now free to enter business deals with the U.S. and major Western firms. In addition, Khartoum will now be free to seek credit from major global lenders, invite investors to the country and buy spare parts to renovate its ageing industries or even repair aircraft for the national carrier. This, however, came after stiff conditions were met by President Donald Trump's government, including depositing U.S.$335 million for compensation of survivors and family members of anti-US attacks that took place during the regime of ousted president Omar al-Bashir.
