Sudan Events – Nahed Oshi

The Arab Organization for Agricultural Development and the Arab League launched an initiative to support agricultural seasons in Sudan by supporting farmers and the Sudan government.

The Director General of the Organization, Professor Ibrahim Adam Al-Dakhiri, said that after the outbreak of war in Sudan, the Organization sought, in coordination with the League of Arab States, to find a formula for rapid intervention in the matter of the agricultural sector in Sudan by regulating and expanding contract farming, especially since Sudan has trade relations with neighboring countries.

Al-Dakhiri pointed out in an interview to be published later that three ongoing conferences will be held to support the existing efforts, in addition to the presence of communication and economic mobility in some stable areas such as the River Nile State.

The following are livestock exports after the rehabilitation of the slaughterhouse in the state by the Saudi private sector.

Al-Dukhairi revealed that a conference was being held in Lebanon to present a vision of how to establish an increase in trade exchange and contract farming, and another conference in the Turkish capital, Istanbul.

He said that there is a plan with the Sudanese and Egyptian private sectors soon that coincides with stability and calm conditions in Sudan and the arrival of the people of Sudan to the hoped-for national project to end the war.

The Director General announced a development plan to reconstruct the agricultural sector after the end of the war, in accordance with established and clear work to bring a major transformation in the agricultural sector at the irrigated, rain-fed and semi-automated levels, so that the slogan “Sudan is the food basket of the world” could be achieved.

Al-Dakhiri said that the vision exists and requires regional and international alignment to bring about the required movement, and the most important of its requirements is the achievement of the Greater Arab Free Trade Area, which allows the Arab world to deal with investment issues and the transformation of agricultural and food systems into more efficient systems, especially since the largest agricultural systems in Sudan, where there is a semi-sector ” looked like Semi-automatic”between 45 and 50 million acres cultivated annually, 76% of which is rain-fed, requiring the introduction of the required technologies, arrangement and framing of institutional procedures, organizing farmers, opening and stabilizing markets, and preparing the required infrastructure.

Al-Dakhiri pointed out to the importance of concerted efforts on the basis of investment and partnerships with the private sector and achieving mutual benefit for all.
