Sudan (October 28, 2021) - "We stand with the people of Sudan. We have robust engagements going forward and some things coming up that I think will demonstrate our commitment to our relationship and also to the people of Sudan"
The opening remarks from Ms. Dana Banks, Senior Director for Africa and Advisor to President Joe Biden, ushered in a new chapter of cooperation between the two countries. The event included prominent speakers from the Sudanese government headed by Prime Minister of Sudan as well as regional and international business leaders from Visa, Boeing, Lindsay, TDB and many others.
Following the recent signing of the U.S. Executive Order removing Sudan from the SSTL, both the CCA and USSBC deemed it an opportune time to host this event to showcase the investment opportunities across key sectors in Sudan including, but not limited to, banking, agribusiness, energy, ICT, infrastructure, and healthcare. Ahmed Amin, Group President of CTC Group, presented the paper on opportunities in the agriculture sector.
In his capacity as Vice Chairman and a founding member of the USSBC, Ahmed Amin played a pivotal role in bringing together this distinguished panel of guest speakers from both countries. Mr. Ahmed Abdellatif has long been an active participant in public and foreign policy issues. In November 2015, CTC Group sponsored and hosted the first-ever Sudanese private sector-funded US Congressional visit to Sudan in partnership with the leading US think tank the Humpty Dumpty Institute. The delegation visited Sudan at the start of the process to normalise relations between Sudan and the US that led to the lifting of US sanctions.
