May 23, 2012 (JUBA) – South Sudan may soon relax its austerity measures if the government reaches a breakthrough with companies owned by a group of US-based multi-billionaires who have expressed their readiness to invest in various sectors in South Sudan.

The visiting group of billionaires headed by Rubar Sandi of TSG-Southex company, on Monday arrived in Juba from the United States of America and met with the Vice-President, Riek Machar, in the presence of seven concerned ministers of the government during which they assured of their readiness to invest in the newly independent country.

The Vice-President’s Press Secretary, James Gatdet Dak, told Sudan Tribune that the billionaires wanted to invest in crude oil, housing, roads and airports construction, agricultural schemes, supply of essential commodities such as food items and fuel, among others.

The ministers who participated in the joint meeting which took place in the office of the Vice-President included Oyai Deng Ajak, Minister for National Security, Garang Diing Akuong, Minister of Commerce, Industry and Investment, Jemma Nunu Kumba, Minister of Housing and Physical Planning, Stephen Dhieu Dau, Minister of Petroleum and Mining, Agnes Poni Lukudu, Minister of Transport, Betty Achan Ogwaro, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry, Simon Mijok Mijak, Deputy Minister of Roads and Bridges.

The billionaires assured the government that unlike some other investors who look for funds elsewhere to finance their investments, the group has its own money ready to invest provided that it reaches an agreement with the government on the terms of investment.

The priorities of the various projects and the details of the agreements will be worked out with the respective relevant ministers for action.

The group also expressed readiness to buy at least five million barrels of crude oil a month from South Sudan, even at well head.

South Sudan last January accused Sudan of stealing its oil and shut down its production. The two countries have failed to reach a deal on oil transportation fee among others in their discussions related to the post-independence issues.

Oil is the main source of revenue for the new nation which took about three quarters of Sudan’s oil production after its independence in July 2011.

South Sudan has adopted the policy of attracting foreign investment to the 10-month old country in order to boost its economy, provide basic services to its populations and put in place non-existent infrastructure such as roads, airports and housing.

The situation has been exacerbated by the recent closure of oil production which was the sole source of the government’s annual budget by 98%. However, government officials assure that the situation will be managed without the oil revenues using other channels.

Juba has recently introduced austerity measures cutting government expenditure. This has seriously affected development projects. The government has, however, maintained the salaries for its civil service, and focused on food provision, as well as keeping schools and clinics open.

The Qatar’s government has also availed hundreds of millions of dollars to the Bank of South Sudan as a credit line for importing essential commodities which require hard currency, helping South Sudan to bring down slowly the rising rate of US dollar against the depreciating South Sudanese pound.

Juba has also introduced providing the Letter of Credit (LC) as the Bank’s guarantee to traders who import such commodities so that the demand for cash hard currency is reduced.

The government has also embarked on improving its weak tax collection system and developing other untapped resources such as gold, timber and Gum Arabic.

    Good news!!!!..the only thing South Sudan Gvt needs to do is to invest in Anti air craft missile. I blame kiir Adminstration for under looking this vital military defense system. Now the NCP is begging us for security just to crush SRF and there after possibly South Sudan but we will not submit to them regardless.

            Mohmet,
            If what you are saying is pure economic logic, then there must be boundary between an arab investor, and a christian investor. But, purely economics, the news itself shores up investment interest and rallys the jittery economic status of south sudan.
            Other people believe south sudan is not failing, and these are the investors. So, woe on you who said, south sudan was badly off.

          SEE ME,

          If you are fake black Arab of Sudan then you look like penguin, why ? because Arabs in general are useless with their stupid culture where people wear sheet and table cloth with laundry in their head. By the way, your Muhammad is a child molester who married a girl of 6 years old and have sex with her when she was 9 years old. Shut up stupid guy.

              You are fake black Arab and not Darfurian and because of that you are fake in everything. If there is one person who is releasing irresponsible statements in this forum, it is you. Deny and prove my wrong. Did Muhammad married a girl of 6 years old or not ? Do Arabs wear sheet and table cloth with laundry in their heads or not. Tell me where Iam wrong ?

                To be DARFURIAN is not your business.

                I was with DINKA at BHAR ALARAB 45 years ago. They have true fathers and I have great respect for then.

                Yes it is true that those who are grown without known fathers are very professional in OBSCENE LANGUAGE.

You are lying by using Darfur as a place of your birth. Who can believe that. You are a fake black Arab of Sudan. There is nothing called Bhar Arab. It is called Kiir. You cannot win any argument with me because you are fake

Any mosquito bite will pray with stealth weapons and mosquito try to cross to our border will be caught and enslave. We will make no distinction whether fur, Nubian, Berber funj or their former slave who become leader.

    Borrowing huge money, or getting massive loans from donors comes with heavy price tags, and will only deepens our crisis, and furthers the suffering of our people and our future generations, and that those loans may go missing into secret accounts and may not be traced. In addition, we’ll be stuck in repaying those loans for many years to come. Finding ways to sell our oil will be our best option.

      Sudan has arrears of US$550 million to IDA, part of total external debt of US$35 billion (World bank)...Our loan disbursements to the country ceased in 1993. Sudan has been in non-accrual status since January 1994, which means that to be eligible for new loans, Sudan must clear all payment arrears in full.

      I don’t know why there is misunderstaning between RSS and GOS in relation to oil.

      PLS advice both to stick to AFRICAN culture.

      Ask them check the oil tranportation between CHAD and CAMEROON.

      Ask them to check what USA owners of oil well pay for transportation.
      Ask SPLM to choose the right person with the related back ground

    Before we allow investors into our country we need to first sort out the security and that includes both internal and external threats. We cant bring in investors when there are hungry rebels roaming the bushes and when our country is yet to define our borders and our Northern Neighbor is still attacking us. But other than that hopefully the security situation improves

    My comments has nothing to do with the article, however, I must point out that the (Machar) VP is getting extremely fat!. You people should be concern about his health. Think about it how many people in south Sudan looks like. Machar will not live to be 60 years old if he continue to eat his way into the grave.

    See Me. I believe that there are two countries now with in Sudan.All are Sudanese.Why should you talk about nonesense and negativities abouth South Sudan. South Sudanese were only fighting for their rights. Their rights were ignored Just because we are blacks. Please stay a way from South Sudanese business. We are now an independent nation and have the right to have friends from around the world.
