China to invest in mining, agriculture sectors

Author : | Published: Monday, December 7, 2015

China has expressed willingness to invest in the agriculture and mining sectors in South Sudan after the implementation of the peace agreement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said.

The spokesman of the ministry, Mawien Makol, says the move was made after a delegation from the country to the Africa-China Summit called for more investment in the country.

The summit was held last week in Pretoria, South Africa.

Mr Makol says South Sudan and China will sign new projects immediately after the implementation of the peace deal.

“When security is restored in the country, investors will be able to invest in the environment that is safe, and China can go out from the oil sector to other sectors,” he stated.

President Salva Kiir had also met with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, on a sideline meeting during the China-Africa Summit.

They discussed China’s investment in the country and the government’s role in the peace process.
