South Sudan: National Export and Investment Strategy (AfCFTA)



    This National Export and Investment Strategy (NEIS) will help foster trade and investment in South Sudan through a combination of effective strategic planning, improved national and subnational government technical support and private sector leadership capacity. This will be achieved by boosting priority sectors (to be identified and selected as part of the strategy design process), developing value chains, and building the implementation, management and analytical capacity of relevant public and private sector stakeholders, notably trade and investment agencies, to mobilize resources and lead the implementation of the actions defined in the strategy. An additional key objective of the NEIS is to support South Sudan’s integration at the global level through WTO accession process, and at the pan-African through the AfCFTA. To this end, priority sectors and investment potential will be assessed partially based on the opportunities foreseen with the integration of the African regional market.
