Khartoum wants to bring foreign businesses back to the country to stimulate the foreign economy. On Wednesday, four US diplomats opened an account at a Sudanese bank for decades.
Ellen Thorburn, chief of mission at the US embassy said: “One of the main reasons for convenience is that we can use our new accounts and debit cards in stores and restaurants when moving around Khartoum. This is symbolic to support the Sudanese economy, we lifted economic sanctions in 2017 and wanted to show that Sudan was put into operation and that banks, international banks, and businesses were well received again.”
