Foreign companies or Sudanese company foreign ownership is not allowed to work in export/import/general trade –prohibited from conducting business in those three things in Sudan, therefore they should have a local distributor or agent
Foreign businesses wishing to contract local agent/distributors should be aware of the risks.
We have counselled foreign clients in various industry sectors on how to minimise risk and ensure that their potential is maximised in Sudan. We have worked with clients in industry sectors such as Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare, Transport, Automotive, Cosmetics, and Food and Agriculture.
We have previously advised General Electric Healthcare on aspects of distribution and agency agreements and central bank regulations (particularly foreign exchange regulations) relating to its operations in Sudan Hikma And many others.
