South Sudan signs trade facilitation agreement


August 25, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan National Revenue Authority (NRA) and TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) have inked an agreement to promote trade and help the young nation, whose economy largely depends on oil revenues, diversify into other sectors by establishing modern systems for the faster clearance of goods.

The deal, officials said in statement, will link South Sudan to the Regional Electronic Cargo Tracking system (RECTs), which is currently implemented on the Northern Corridor in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) through the respective revenue and customs administrations.

RECTs is a web-based integrated system used to monitor transit cargo from departure to the final destination.

The new trade agreement is in important in that it will assist Juba in reducing the cost of security bonds, theft and diversions, and enhance security on the transit route from the port of Mombasa.

TMEA, however, said it hopes South Sudan’s Government of National Unity, expected to be inaugurated on November 12, will materialise.

“We are committed to doing our part, but it has to be stressed that we need a government of national unity to stick to the peace deal and start doing good work for the citizens in November,” said TMEA CEO Frank Matsaert at the signing of the deal on Friday last week.

South Sudan, where oil revenues make up nearly 98 percent of the budget, has been reeling an under economic crisis due to civil war.

    Of course, South Sudanese are very good and quick at signing agreements without even reading them...!

    This is typical of the sophomoric and grovelling charateristics of dudes like Thouth Thouth aka South Sudan: congratulation, this is a good development, etc....

      Please respect yourself and don’t show us your weakness. We have the best well educated people in our community. Our attorney general has a master degree from Harvard. People who love monkey and speak like monkeys, like calling Zebra (Jebra), Azande tribe (Ajande) are nothing but monkey to us.

        "trucks loaded with food items donated by the South African government have safely reached South Sudan’s Yei River State, a local relief official said."

        At the moment, we have over 60,000 returnees who arrived in Yei since the signing of the revitalized peace agreement and in Kajo-Keji alone, we have received over 20,000 returnees for the las

          Of course our armed forces are mindful of whatever help at this critical juncture is destined for our people. It’s an indication that jienge nyors have been neutralized and pose no threat. But any armed trucks are attacked immediately. So, don’t think that the jienge regime is anywhere strong. This is purely humanitarian. So look for new excuses jienge.
