More than 600 German companies have expressed interests in investing in different sectors in the country.

Representatives of the companies met heads of various planning committees in the parliament on Wednesday.

Charles Huber, who is a member of parliament in Germany, represented the companies.

He said the investments will also improve bilateral relations between South Sudan and Germany.

“They will first evaluate what the options of possibilities of the needs of your country are, and then they will forward that to the partners,” said Mr Huber.

Phillip Thon Leek, Chairperson of the Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Relations, said this would help create job opportunities for the youth:

“Doing development is a stabilizer because the youth have to be employed because if the youth are not employed, this is a recipe for conflict even if there is no rebellion.”

Germany has been actively supporting the peace processes in South Sudan for years, including stabilizing and building up state structures as well as supporting the South Sudanese Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration program (DDR), assisting with administrative reforms, and strengthening infrastructure.
