Built where two Niles reunite, Khartoum is the official capital city of Sudan. It is a vast city which has three main cities: Khartoum North, Bahri and Omdurman. It is a very modern town with a number of contemporary infrastructures, souqs and touristic sites. Home to the administration, education and political buildings, it is where it happens.
Arabic is the official language of the country and the mother-tongue of half of the population. English is also widely spoken with more than 400 other native languages.
Sudan is an agricultural country and where the oil industry has an important role to play in the country. With an abundance of natural resources, both employ more than half of the population. However, the country remains undeveloped and underprivileged. It depends heavily on its primary sectors: Agronomic, petroleum exploration and refineries are the biggest players in Sudan’s industry sector. Despite the slow progression, Sudan still attracts new investments and can experience a new growth.
Interesting Fact about Sudan:
Sudan suffers from inadequate portable water supplies, which gives rise to problems such as periodic droughts, soil erosion and desertification. Due to excessive hunting, the wildlife population is threatened.
