Al Suwaidi stressed significance of the UAE leadership’s instructions in supporting development projects in Sudan and to consolidate the relations between the two peoples. He pointed out that the loan aims to improve the Sudanese economy through the support of its balance of payments

The two sides also inked Memorandum of Understanding on preparing feasibility study on constructing Khartoum- Port Sudan road as per world-class standard to facilitate traffic in those areas.

The Abu Dhabi Fund for Development has financed a number of projects worth over one billion UAE Dirham .
