Civilian transition would lift Sudan’s economic slump

Monday, March 13, 2023

  • Speedy government formation could allow recovery to begin in the second half of 2023, bringing growth into positive territory.
  • Even if external support resumes, the chronically high trade deficit will drive further foreign exchange shortages.
