The market is supported by Saudi foreign direct invest inflows and involvement from China, with
western businesses sidelined as US-led sanctions persist.
? An escalation in conflict in South Sudan will further weaken infrastructure development in the market
and we do not expect planned projects with the East African community to gain traction in the short term.
