After Decades in the Dark, Sudan May Soon Be Open for Business

Sudanese celebrate an agreement on a civilian-majority legislative body following the removal of authoritarian leader Omar al Bashir in April 2019. The body will be in power for the next three years, after which, elections will be held to allow citizens to decide on its next composition.

Following 30 years of iron-fisted rule by now-deposed president Omar al Bashir, a transition to a civilian-led government could eventually prompt the United States to take Sudan off its terrorism list, which has long constrained investment in the East African country.
