EES: Officials meet Chinese investors

By Ijoo Bosco Modi

Eastern Equatoria State government met with Sangmu HK International Company, a Chinese-based company, to discuss investment opportunities in the state.

The Chinese delegation, comprising over 10 members, discussed agriculture, mining, education, and financing as their top priorities, but the two sides are yet to sign a memorandum of understanding.

The chairperson for Sangmu HK, Mr. Peng Xiaoyan spoke to the press and said their discussion focused mainly on mining and other areas.

Mr Peng expressed happiness and praised the country’s leadership and the Chinese Embassy for their cooperation and networking efforts.

Governor’s advisor on economic affairs in Eastern Equatoria state, German Charles Ojok, described the Chinese delegation as a rescue body for the local population, aiming to change the narrative on the nature of agricultural tools used by the local population.

Ojok assured the Chinese delegation that the initiative was timely and would grant them untouched land since the world’s creation.

Deputy Governor Mary Alphonse Lodira welcomed the Chinese largest company and assured investors that the state is free for investment, as per the state’s strategic plan.

Mary stated that the arrival of investors will inform the state population about their local mineral resources through the use of machines.
