South Sudan said on Tuesday it has launched a digital technology that will provide online information to probable investors in a bid to boost investments and trade.

James Wani Igga, second vice-president, said that the latest innovation will make South Sudan competitive globally as it seeks investments to help its economy recover from more than five years of conflict.

“The use of digitalization will help to share information, work efficiently and effectively to deliver better services to the public,” said Igga.

He added that South Sudan was ready for foreign investors after setting up several projects like the one-stop border post with neighboring countries to ease the cost of doing business in the landlocked country.

Anthony Lino Makana, speaker of the South Sudan parliament, said they are going to make laws that support digitalization of business in the country.

“Through digitalization business people will have the need of coming to South Sudan, they can apply online, get registered and come to transact here,” Makana said.

Paul Mayom Akec, minister of trade for East African Community (EAC), said that technology will improve transparency and accountability.

“Modernization through information technology will improve our operation and enhance transparency and accountability in revenue collection as well as linking government sectors,” said Akec.

Karthik Meda Shivaprasad, head of SIF tech company that installed the digital technology, said digitalization will bring positive results to South Sudan as it optimizes resources and enhances labor productivity. Enditem
