- Sudan’s economic growth rose to above 5% in 2015 and is expected to increase further to above 6% in 2016 and 2017, mainly driven by agriculture and extractive industries and supported by improved macroeconomic policies.
- Challenges continue to be sustaining economic policy reforms, economic stability, civil war, and meeting the country’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs); but a positive outcome of the national dialogue is hoped to lead to an end of the civil war and improvement in economic stability.
- A coherent urban-development strategy is needed to better cope with population growth, the internal displacements of people due to the continuing civil war and the currently weak urban-rural linkages.
