Al Salam Al'Aikum,
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
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.
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
I would like to avail of this opportunity to 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 our long-standing commitment to
learning and continuous improvement, we welcome your feedback as we continue to
improve this site.
