Juba, 11th May 2018. The East African Business Council or EABC will incorporate challenges facing the private sector in South Sudan to its policy advocacy agenda, the Chairman discloses.
Jim Kabeho urges the business community of South Sudan to join the EAC to benefit from trade and available opportunities across the region and beyond.
The South Sudanese business community is expected to gain on capacity building, advisory services on trade policy, law and opportunity to influence policy reforms, he notes.
“Public-private partnership has been one the key factors behind most of the achievements attained in the East African Community region”, says Kabeho.
EABC is unwavering to collaborate with the private sector in South Sudan, the Chairman pledges.
