JUBA, 04 September 2018 [Gurtong]-Moses Hassan Thiel the Minister of Trade, Industry and East African Community Affairs said his ministry is organizing the second ‘Made in South Sudan’ exhibition to prepare the country’s producers participate in the regional exhibition scheduled for the first week of December in Kenya.

The second “Made in South Sudan Exhibition” will take place next month in the first week of October at Nyakuron Cultural Center, according to the trade minister.

Last year the trade ministry in collaboration with UNDP organized the first ever ‘Made in South Sudan’ event that attracted many companies to display their products made in the country.
The trade fair is meant to create awareness to the people in order to participate in the regional exhibition.

Minister Hassan said that many people including regional and International Community working in South Sudan are not aware of the various goods made in the country and as such, the made in South Sudan exhibition would help create awareness on South Sudanese goods.

“We realized that there are a lot of people who are not aware of the products which are made in South Sudan. There are people who locally produce products including companies which produces product like honey,” Minister Hassan said.

He added that this year’s exhibition would enable upcoming companies in the countries to display their products to the public.

Minister Hassan said preparation for the regional trade fair was underway with potential participants to know what products South Sudan is going to display so that they could be taken to Kenya for the exhibition.
