Share Post:

Al Salam Al’Aikum,

  Coinciding with the 25th anniversary year of establishing our Embassy, here in Malaysia, we found the importance of strengthening another dimension of interaction with the public in order to further enhance the means of communication with the browsers.   

  As part of our commitment to keeping our work easily accessible, we have created a more navigable website with additional resources, better tools, and a new visual design to support and provide information in the areas of Consular Services, Investment Opportunities, Education in Malaysia, an open forum for dialogue and much more. 

  With our completely redesigned site, you are now able to search our existing materials about Sudan more easily – its History, Sites of Attraction, The Economy and Resources, the latest news and the activities of the Embassy in Malaysia.  We will also be digitizing some of the consular services and we request all the Sudanese citizens to register in the website for all their future applications.

Country National Dialogue

  To provide a brief report on the current status of Sudan in the different fields, politically it has been stable in the past years and the Government is leading a National Dialogue with the Sudanese Political Parties and other rebel forces, to reach an agreement that will lead to further stability and development in the country.

  Economically, Sudan is recognized among the fastest growing economies worldwide. Over the last decade, GDP achieved a growth rate of more than 6%. Sudan is endowed with huge resources of minerals, oil, livestock and more than 140 million square acres of untapped fertile land, satisfactory rain-fed irrigation and waters over and under the ground.

  Currently, only 20% of arable land is utilized of which less than 10% is under perennial irrigation. Production of food grains such as rice, maize, wheat, sorghum, millets, sesame seed, sunflower and other tropical crops, as well as sugar cane and cotton have proved to be lucrative investments. 

Inviting Malaysian Investors

Sudan extend an invitation to Malaysian investors and business community to visit the Sudan and to acquaint themselves with its hospitable and passionate people who traditionally espouse a great love and admiration for Malaysia and its people. The longstanding relations between the two sisterly nations have developed in the past years in the areas of trade, expertise exchange, capacity building, education and many other fields. Effecting the long-standing commitment to learning and continuous improvement, Sudan welcome your feedback as Sudan continues to improve this site.
