Sudan sits at the crossroads of Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, its powerful neighbour, Egypt, bordering it to the north, Libya and Chad to the west, and Eritrea and Ethiopia to the east. Its capital, Khartoum, lies at the confluence of the White and Blue Niles, and its main port on the Red Sea. Although mostly desert, it has fertile land, mountains, and livestock.

Sudan's Economy

Sudan's real GDP growth is projected to be 3.6% in 2019 and 3.8% in 2020, benefiting from a strong commitment to ongoing macroeconomic policy and structural reforms, including removing tax exemptions, reducing public spending, rationalising imports while providing incentives to boost exports, a rebound in manufacturing, and high private consumption.
