On December 1, 2020, Dmitry Mazepin, chairman of the board of directors of URALCHEM, deputy chairman of the board of directors of Uralkali, member of the Bureau of the Board of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP) visited Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, where he met with vice-president – Lieutenant General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo and Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.

The main purpose of the work visit is to expand business on the African continent. At the highest level, the parties discussed opportunities, approaches and cooperation mechanisms related to the supply of URALCHEM and Uralkali products to Sudan, tax benefits and relations between the two countries.

Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, vice-president – Lieutenant General, said, “Sudan has large areas of land and is interested in developing agriculture and attracting foreign investors. URALCHEM can show by its example that our country is ready and open to long-term cooperation with Russia. And the new government will do everything possible for this.”

Dmitry Mazepin, chairman of the board of directors of URALCHEM, deputy chairman of the board of directors of Uralkali, member of the Bureau of the Board of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP), added, “Sudan has been in a difficult situation for the past ten years. Now the leadership of the country and the new government are focused on reviving the economy. We believe that Sudan can become the platform in the Eastern part of Africa, where we can significantly increase our position as a fertiliser seller. URALCHEM and Uralkali, for their part, will do their best to promote mutually beneficial and friendly relations between Russia and Sudan. We plan to start supplying fertilisers to the country in 2021.”

For several years, companies have been the main partners of African countries, both in terms of technology exports and in terms of product exports. Uninterrupted supplies of products have been established to Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya, Angola and Mozambique, and educational projects are being developed in cooperation with African agronomic educational institutions.
