UNDP: A National Development Strategy is critical for South Sudan

Mar 02, 10:22 AM
The in-coming Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) says  South Sudan should consolidate its independence by building institutions to serve the people.

Samuel Doe arrived in South Sudan in January 2021 to take on the stewardship of UNDP and its programs. 

In an exclusive interview with Radio Miraya, Mr Doe said South Sudan has huge potential that should be tapped for the benefit of its citizens.

He said the immediate challenge would be to put the history of conflict and war behind and forge a way forward.

In this 20" interview with Sebit William, the UNDP Representative talks about the UN's ongoing support to draft a National Development Strategy that would guide South Sudan on the path to economic development.
