Turkey to start agricultural investment in Sudan: Minister
Turkey’s required agricultural crops will be produced in Sudan’s agricultural lands, which were reserved for Turkish entrepreneurs’ investment, Turkish Agriculture and Forestry Minister Bekir Pakdemirli has said.
Pakdemirli will visit Sudan with private sector representatives on Sept. 9-11 to meet with President Omar al-Bashir and Sudanese ministers.
“Agricultural needs for the private sector’s investments in Sudan will be imported from Turkey, thus Turkey’s exports will be raised,” he added.
The project will provide employment to people of the two countries and the crops produced as part of the project will be exported mostly to third countries.
The two countries also decided to establish a joint agricultural and livestock company last March.
Last December, a business forum was held in Sudan when President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan visited the country.
