Technical Assistance project to the Sudanese Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning to support economic transition

Following a period of thirty years of dictatorship, a peaceful revolution resulting in a power sharing agreement between military/security services and civilian opposition groups led to a civilian led, technocratic government assuming power in September 2019. The priorities established for the transition are: peace; stabilisation of the economy and preparation for democratic elections in 2022.
In this context, the European Union proposed a relevant programme in response to the country needs as the overall objective is to support the Government of Sudan (GoS) in its efforts to achieve sound and inclusive economic reforms during the democratic transition.
Given the political will and strategic importance for the country to demonstrate the integrity and good management of its public finances, the EU decides to set up a project to support capacity building in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning in order to better coordinate aid, strengthen public finance management and stabilise the financial system.
This €10M programme is built on 3 components, managed by different actors:
Expertise France will be responsible for the implementation of the activities of component 2: statistics, taxation (tax administration and tax policy), governance of state-owned enterprises and external control, as well as the activities of component 3 dedicated to the Central Bank of Sudan via a review of the quality of banking assets, representing a total amount of 6 million euros.
The technical assistance will be implemented by a project team composed of:
