  • His Excellency Mohammed Saif Al Suwaidi attributes productive collaboration between ADFD and Sudanese government to leadership   guidance 
  • The Fund contributes to boosting Sudanese economy, enhancing monetary and financial stability 
  • ADFD bolsters historic ties with Sudan through supporting development programmes that serve the most important economic sectors 

Abu Dhabi, UAE March 14, 2018:  The UAE and the Republic of Sudan enjoy long-standing cooperation and strategic bilateral relations.

Built on economic and development partnerships, these historic brotherly ties have significantly contributed to the progress and prosperity of Sudan.

Under the leadership of the UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and in line with the wise directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, the UAE has been supporting the Sudanese government in achieving comprehensive development through financing strategic projects and encouraging diversified investments of UAE companies in Sudan.

To date, the UAE has provided more than AED28 billion in investments and development financing to Sudan. Moreover, 17 UAE companies are operating in various economic sectors in Sudan.

Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) is one of the leading national institutions supporting socio-economic development in Sudan through providing nearly AED7.3 billion in financing towards strategic development projects in various sectors, as well as investments and deposits. 

Spanning crucial sectors, such as industry, transportation, energy, water, and irrigation, ADFD's 17 development projects in Sudan have a total value of approximately AED2 billion. Moreover, the Fund has disbursed about AED5 billion (US$1.4 billion) to support liquidity and foreign currency reserves at the Central Bank of Sudan.

This assisted the Sudanese government in stimulating the economy, overcoming financial and economic challenges, and strengthening monetary and financial stability in the country.

ADFD is also keen on driving economic growth through investment cooperation with the Sudanese government.

The Fund currently holds a 100 per cent stake in the Al Dhabi Development Company, a multi-disciplinary holding company that aims to drive economic growth in Sudan.

His Excellency Mohammed Saif Al Suwaidi, Director General of ADFD, said: “The UAE and ADFD are proud of the deep-rooted partnership with the Government of Sudan.

The fraternal ties have grown stronger under the guidance of our wise leadership, enabling us to achieve promising results.”

He added: “Today, in line with our leadership's directives, we continue our collaboration with our brothers in the Sudanese government through supporting development programmes that benefit the Sudanese economy.”

Praising the partnership between the Fund and the Sudanese government as a model of constructive collaboration, His Excellency Mohammed Saif Al Suwaidi noted that ADFD has contributed to financing development projects that serve the most important economic sectors in Sudan. 

Since the commencement of its development activities in Sudan, ADFD has focused on assisting the Sudanese government in its efforts to improve the country's infrastructure – a pillar of socio-economic development, and a fundamental element in the growth and prosperity of various economic sectors. 

Apart from supporting Sudan's balance of payments, ADFD has adopted a holistic approach to funding projects that align with its mission to promote sustainable development in brotherly and friendly countries, and elevate standards of living.

Examples include dam projects that enhance electricity generation and water supply for irrigation, the Khartoum International Airport project, and the railway network project.  

In addition to ADFD's activities and within the framework of cooperation between the two countries, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has been providing Sudan with diesel since 2017, meeting the needs of the local market and supporting various sectors including transport and industry.

The value of the fuel supplied to date is estimated at AED3.2 billion (US$900 million). 

Moreover, with a cumulative value of more than AED18 billion of diversified investments, the UAE private sector also enjoys an active collaboration with its Sudanese counterpart.

Seventeen UAE companies currently invest in Sudan across vital sectors including tourism, agriculture, aviation, and oil and gas.

Through supporting the country's agriculture sector, these investments have played a crucial role in increasing the competitiveness of wheat and fodder pricing.
