The government of Japan has offered South Sudan 27 million dollars for construction of river ports along the Nile.

The minister of transport, John Luk Jok, says an agreement was signed a in Japan few days ago.
“We have just signed an agreement. My undersecretary and the CEO of the river transport just returned two days ago from Japan,” he said, speaking on Eye Radio’s dawn show, adding that his ministry was considering the establishment of about 4 river-ports.

“Well japan is now offering twenty seven million dollars for upgrading the juba river transport.”
He said a timeline of thirty months has been awarded for the project, within which, if not all, at least some of the ports will be ready for use.

He said the river ports will help in handling bulk transportation.
