“South Sudan economy has improved since 2018 with our implementation of the peace agreement, so we are urging people to come back and invest home,” Ambassador Simon Juach Deng said giving his remarks at the SPLM 40th Liberation Anniversary celebrated on the 16th May at the South Sudan embassy in Kampala Uganda.
Amb Juach called upon all potential investors from the neighboring countries mostly in the East African community to come and invest in Southern Sudan to help the country and the region grow.
“We have both licensed and unlicensed Ugandans doing businesses in south Sudan, and there fore am inviting you to pass on the message that there is peace across the country” said Amb. Simon Juach Deng.
Uganda being a hospitality country started hosting South Sudanese refugees during colonial times and according ambassador Deng the exact number of South Sudanese hosted in Uganda is not known how ever they’re aware of places like Kayunga Bweyogerere and Bombo that have descendants from S. Sudan who are now Ugandans.
