South Sudan’s ambassador to Turkey urged Turkish investors to “be among the first” to invest in his country, even as a new transitional government takes shape under a landmark peace deal.

“We want to appeal to the business community in Turkey as we enter a new era, we want investors from our friends the Turkish people,” Ambassador Majok Guandong told Anadolu Agency.

The diplomat said that there are some four Turkish construction companies currently working in South Sudan. “But we need more.”

“We want construction companies from Turkey because we know Turkey. They are the best,” he said.

He added that Turkish people are very honest and they are the type of people his country wants to associate ourselves with.

“Our priority is to deliver services to the people ... that means building roads, building hospitals, building schools... and there will be an opportunity for investors,” Guandong said.

He urged Turkish investors to see the situation in South Sudan and take the lead in investment.
