TGNU formation will ameliorate South Sudan’s economy


By Paulino Akoon Yel Dut

General speaking and honestly, as you could have quite familiar that H.E President Salva Kiir Mayardit is ready to form Transitional Government of National Unity for upcoming 12 November 2019. The economy of South Sudan which was turned downfall would be improved according to my observation analysis. The worse disadvantage of insurrection was caused by economic ruination which is an inflation of money like what happened currently in South Sudan. Of course, South Sudan pounds lost its value even though you have held millions of pounds it doesn’t mean you’re carrying enough money. So the economic crisis has mostly happened during the conflicts in the country. War did not only affected economic in the nation, but it also puts human life is risky and causes an outbreak of diseases such as Cholera, Measle and other dangerous contagious and airborne diseases. Displacement of innocent civilian to refugee’s camps is account as a huge demerit.

Therefore, I should thank Mr President for signing the revitalized peace agreement. Which is a good move for unity of the people of the Republic of South Sudan without segregation? President Salva Kiir Mayardit is a peace lover leader in Africa and particularly to the people of South Sudan. He is working very hard to bring his people together and adjust economic in our sovereign nation (South Sudan). When there is Peace in the nation things are going soothingly without obstacle apparently. Now the peace was signed in our country of which all the businesses should be operating in a country without insecurity.

In fact, in this article, I narrate more impacts of peace on economic growth in developing country. Social capacity for building peace is playing an important role through the peacebuilding capacity in the determination of economic growth in a developing country like South Sudan rather than proximate determinants of the growth such as capital, labour, technology and liberal market economic policies. Peace measured by scores for peacebuilding capacity has positive effects on economic growth directly and indirectly. Peace environment countries have higher growth than conflict countries. Peace reduces uncertainty and risk hence positively contributes to economic growth in present globalization. Peace has a positive effect on physical capital accumulation and human capital accumulation. This effect is more significant than other economic determinants of physical and human capital accumulation. The economies which have peace environment accumulate more physical and human capital accumulation and enhance economic growth rapidly. Peace contributes to economic growth by the ways of increase of productivity in capital and labour, good governance, tourist arrival and efficient of institutions also. It’s pleasure for 64 tribes of this country waiting for the formation of the new government of South Sudan. Changes Will be seen very soon in term of economic improvement.

However, so we need economic development in South Sudan that is conducive to peace. Peace through prosperity is the wide and fair participation in the creation and proceeds of growth: jobs, incomes and livelihoods. Economic activities that are both socially and environmentally sustainable also contribute to peace. Finally, I urge the youth of this country to cooperates themselves in form of togetherness and support peace and administration of President Salva Kiir Mayardit. Building peace is the leeway for unity, reconciliation and economic adjustment.
