  • There are 4,500 fishermen
  • There are 3,500 fishing-boats
  • There are 75 fishing-villages
  • Traditional fishing boats are being used with only 5% of the boats using over-board engines

Remarks The country with its vast natural resources, reasonable infrastructure and marked political stability has promulgated an investment legislation that offers a number of privileges and incentives. The business profit tax was reduced from 35% to 15% on the services sector, 10% on the industrial sector and 0% on the agricultural sector.
In addition, these rather low rates are applied after oneyear of the inception of the project.
By allowing investors to freely repatriate their profits and import of capital goods free of custom duties, Sudan stands as an investment haven.
