South Sudan turn to co-operatives to help grow economy

South Sudan turn to co-operatives to help grow economy | Business in South Sudan | Scoop.it

"South Sudan is troubled. Despite it gaining independence from Sudan last July, the two nations are still at odds, especially over control of the oil produced along their border.

orruption in South Sudan is rife. In June, a letter from President Salva Kir, asking 75 ministers and officials to return $4 billion of stolen government money, was leaked to the press.

Infrastructure is far from adequate – the country’s first major tarmac road was built this year. And poverty is the norm; pre-independence, the United Nations Development Project put South Sudan’s poverty rate at 50.6 per cent.

Nevertheless, there is hope that co-operative agriculture and finance, coupled with the benefits of economic and infrastructural growth, could make rural South Sudan a garden for the region and beyond. It is an optimistic vision, but this young nation has yet to fail."

Brazil has announced that it will cancel or restructure almost 900m dollars worth of debt with Africa. Oil- and gas-rich Congo-Brazzaville, Tanzania and Zambia are among the 12 African countries to benefit.
Timothy Brinkley's insight:

This is fantastic.  What an example for other nations to follow.  The Torah has a similar debt cancellation policy that happens every 50 years called the year of Jubilee.  The Koran also advocates the cancellation of debt that is unjust as an act of mercy.
