- Economic growth slowed in 2016 to an estimated 3% as a result of the decline in oil production and macroeconomic imbalances and is projected at 3.4% in 2017 and 3.6% in 2018 on the back of improved performance in the non-oil sector and temporary lifting of US sanctions.
- The government’s attempts to expand the democratic space in the context of national dialogue augur well for an improved economic performance and political stability.
- The share of Sudan’s entrepreneurs outside agriculture is sizeable but the limited number of entrepreneurial programmes, scarce technical training and the challenging business environment call for a coherent national strategy to boost and harness entrepreneurial energy and talent for inclusive growth.
