South Darfur to redistribute unused land
Unused plots in South Darfur meant for investment projects will be redistributed since no development has taken place on them, the state government said.
South Darfur State Minister in the Supreme Council for Investment Abdel Rahim Omar issued a decision to revoke licenses for plots of unimplemented projects. He said that 26 plots were previously allocated to construct fuel stations but none have been implemented. 3,000 private investment pieces are currently under subject for review.
“The council has taken this action to encourage investment at this time, since there are local and foreign investors who wish to invest,” Omar said. He added that the decision will start with the service sector, followed by the rest of the agricultural and industrial sectors.
