The National Bureau of Statistics is pleased to launch the South Sudan Cost-to-Market Report: An Analysis of Check-points on the Major Trade Routes in South Sudan.
Unauthorized check-points along the major trade routes are a pressing issue for the Government of South Sudan. Payment and time spent waiting at unauthorized check-points increases costs faced by traders, producers and consumers within South Sudan, inhibiting economic development at this critical period of South Sudan’s history. This report is a first step in quantifying the problem and will provide a baseline to evaluate progress made by the government in streamlining revenue collection and eliminating unauthorized check-points.
The Launch of the Report is scheduled for Tuesday 11th October from 9:30 a.m. at Home and Away Conference Hall.
