Speakers: British Ambassador, Michael Aron and 6 members from the US Sudan Business Council
The US Government eased sanctions against Sudan earlier this year in a first step towards normalising relations. In return, Sudan will improve access for aid groups, stop supporting rebels in neighbouring South Sudan, cease the bombing of insurgent territory and cooperate with intelligence agents.
This is creating a new enthusiasm in Sudan and a more positive conversation is now possible between Sudanese and major international businesses. Chevron and GE are two recent arrivals in Khartoum.
To build on this and to ensure UK continues to be a key participant in discussions - British Ambassador, Michael Aron, will lead a Sudanese delegation of the following six members from the US Sudan Business Council to London in March.
