Sudan undertook a Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DTIS) which was validated in October 2008. Following the secession of South Sudan from Sudan, Sudan reactivated its interest in the EIF. The World Bank has been engaged to update its DTIS, and a Tier project 1 is about to be developed to support the process. 

Description of the projects (objectives and interventions)

The on-going DTIS update by the World Bank is to be finalized in April 2014. The preparation of a Tier 1 project proposal is under way, with the support of a consultant to be recruited by the EIF Executive Secretariat.

Outlook

The DTIS update by the World Bank is to be finalized. A Tier 1 project proposal should be formulated by the end of 2013.
