Minister of Foreign Trade Calls to Benefit from Austerity Money to Finance Sudanese Exports
Khartoum - Minister of Foreign Trade said the austerity measures adopted by the government must play a positive role in the Sudanese economy; and its positive effects must be directed to support Sudanese exports.
