Tourism

  • The number of international visitors visiting Juba and other major towns is growing fast (In 2005, there were no airlines flying to Juba International Airport; now, there are 32 operators flying to Juba and the vast majority are foreign airlines)
  • Most countries of similar size have at least 3 or 4 international hotel brands operating in the country to serve the business traveller market; but South Sudan has only a handful of 2 to 3-star hotels. No 4/5 star hotels in Juba today
  • Second largest animal migration in Africa.

 

Cement/ Construction Materials

  • Growing infrastructure projects and business facilities in South Sudan is driving demand for cement and other construction materials; imports are estimated at $3.4 million and growing. Foreign players are looking at the possibility of establishing a cement production plant in the country
  • Due to distance and poor infrastructure, supply of materials from neighboring countries is costly; South Sudan has deposits of limestone, sand, and other critical raw materials need for production.
  • Joint public-private action is needed to confirm deposits, award concessions, develop skills, address power and transport bottlenecks, establish appropriate industry zones, etc.
     

Transport/ Logistics Services

  • With independence and economic growth, demand for both freight and passenger transport services is growing rapidly: trucking lines, passenger vehicle services, river-boat services, air taxis and charters,clearing and forwarding agents, etc.
  • Several local and regional investors have established trucking companies, car agencies and air charter services, but the demand of transport services continues unmet.

 

 

Private Healthcare

  • With extremely limited local healthcare services, there is enormous potential for private investment in healthcare facilities in South Sudan (several private healthcare operators in the region who may be interested):
  • Private healthcare facilities: Juba Medical Complex, has seen over 5,200 patients in an 8-month period operating on a fee-basis.
  • In the long term, build and run public hospitals, clinics and medical distribution systems, under PPP schemes.

 

 

Private Education

  • With limited local education services, there is enormous potential for private investment in education facilities in South Sudan.
  • One of the few existing private schools in Juba, the Dr. John Garang International School, is almost at capacity despite relatively high annual tuition.
