Khartoum must establish banking presence in South Sudan, bank manager says

The lack of Sudanese banks in South Sudan is an impediment to trade between the two countries which could potentially reach a volume of $2 billion annually, according to the general manager of Sudan’s Export Development Bank (EDB) Mohammed Rashid Mohammed Salem. Therefore, he called for the swift signing of cooperation protocols between the central banks in Khartoum and Juba which would allow for a Sudanese banking presence in South Sudan. The Sudanese banker emphasised the readiness of the EDB to contribute to the development of trade and exports to South Sudan in order to support the banking system there.
