Sudan: Economists Call for Intensive Efforts to Exempt External Debt


Economists expected the new government, after its formation, to lead an intensive external movement to cancel Sudan’s debt, pointing out that the existence of Sudan’s name on the list of states sponsoring terrorism is obstacle the cancellation of these debts.

Speaking to SMC, Abdullah al-Ramadi, an economist said that political stability in the country would have a positive impact on the economy.

In connection, Dr. Mohamed Hassan Abdel-Rahim, an economist, said that 60% of external debts were considered as benefits and should be exempted once the new government is in office.
