SSOP 2017: Investing in South Sudan Panel Highlights

Instability and insecurity in South Sudan have posed, for some investors, insurmountable challenges. But the nation’s resource base, human capital potential and its infrastructure deficit – from roads and railways to pipelines and phone lines – also present unparalleled investment opportunities. How can energy and infrastructure projects gain funding in South Sudan today? What are the risks and how can they be better managed? What are the economic challenges and how will they be overcome? What mechanisms can be employed to finance local companies’ growth as well as civil engineering and large-scale oil and gas developments? Our panel from South Sudan Oil & Power 2017 looked at the regulatory framework and the fundamentals of investing in South Sudanese energy and infrastructure.
Panelists included Anuol Deng, Managing Partner, Awatkeer Law Chambers; Oliver Denis Pamba, Country Manager, Schlumberger; Victoria Otieno, Managing Director, Alpha Bank; Dr. Addis Ababa Othow, Executive Director, Equity Bank; and moderator, Nul Jacob Mayendit, Managing Director, Baping National Insurance.
