Economic Sector Committee recommends removing obstacles to Sudan's accession to the WTO

The Technical Committee of the Economic Sector of the Council of Ministers recommended the need to overcome all obstacles that prevent Sudan from joining the World Trade Organization, especially the legal obstacles, as well as preparing to avoid the negative effects of joining the organization by adopting economic policies aimed at reducing the impact of joining the strategic sectors in the country.
This came at a meeting on Monday, October 1, 2018 in the Council of Ministers chaired by Mr. Bilal Yousef Al-Mubarak, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Industry, where a report was reviewed on the position of Sudan's accession to the World Trade Organization presented by Yssin Issa - Secretary General of the General Secretariat for accession to the World Trade Organization.

The meeting re assured that Sudan joining to the WTO creates an appropriate environment for increasing and diversifying Sudan's exports as well as creating the country to increase domestic and foreign investment while strengthening and strengthening the legal system governing the trade system in Sudan.
The report pointed out that the flow of trade through the implementation of the Convention on Trade Facilitation in the areas of goods and services will lead to a reduction in the cost of export and improve the competitiveness of goods of Sudanese exports as well as reduce the cost of imported goods, which leads to lower prices when purchased by the consumer.
