Riyadh -- The Sudanese capital state of Khartoum has $45 billion worth of agricultural projects that are available for investors, Saudi newspaper Al-Watan reported on Sunday, quoting a senior official.
One of the projects is worth $500 million and consists of tendering 2,100 sq km of farmland west of Omdurman, the capital state's Agriculture, Irrigation and Animal Wealth Minister Jouda Othmane Ismail said without elaborating.
Over the past few months, Sudan has attracted several investors from Gulf countries as part of efforts to secure food supplies from abroad.
