3. Hire a remote team in Sudan

The effects of the global pandemic are seen in commodity prices, travel, trade, and financial flows, with an estimated 8.4% decline in the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Sudan's economy is expected to remain in recession in 2021, before recovering with modest growth in 2022.

Despite the fact that Covid-19 has had a negative impact on Sudan's economy, many businesses continue to operate smoothly due to the new age of working remotely. Rapid changes are now possible, and the job market has accelerated in light of the current lockdown scenario. As a result, this has proven to be a boon for a variety of markets, including freelancing, entry-level computer engineers, telecommunication, customer service, and many others.

4. Cost of living in Sudan

Sudan's cost of living is $657, which is 1.42 times less expensive than the global average. Sudan ranked 129th out of 197 countries in terms of cost of living and 159th in terms of quality of life.

Sudan's average after-tax salary is $110, which is enough to cover living expenses for 0.2 months.

Why does living in Sudan cost six times the average salary? Because we have a reference point of a developed country lifestyle, and maintaining such a standard of living in some least developed countries is difficult and expensive. As a result, living costs in Sudan differ significantly between locals and expats.

5. Cost of renting in Sudan

The cost of living in a country can vary depending on the city in which one chooses to live. Accommodation can be found at reasonable prices. Still, the size of the housing and the facilities are factors.

On average, an apartment with three bedrooms outside of the city center will cost around USD 350.00 per month and an apartment with three bedrooms inside the city center will cost around USD 548.22 per month. It is also heavily influenced by the city you choose to live in and your standard of living.

6. Major industries in Sudan

Agriculture is one of Sudan's most important industries, accounting for nearly 40% of the country's GDP. Cotton, peanuts, gum arabic, and sesame seeds are grown here, and it employs more than 80% of the workforce.

Sudan's industrial sector accounts for 7% of the country's total GDP. Electronics assembly, agricultural processing, furniture, tanning, sugar production, and other industries are rapidly developing. This is likely to result in an increase in employment opportunities for Sudan's working-age population.

Sudan's oil industry is vital, exporting oil to countries such as Japan, China, South Korea, Indonesia, and India.

The mining industry has grown in importance in the Sudanese economy since the introduction of exploitable quantities of petroleum.

On mobile phones, the average download speed in Sudan is 13.96Mbps, and the average upload speed is 7.44Mbps.

The Sudanese government is taking appropriate measures to increase employment opportunities for the working-age population and to implement flexible employment terms.

7. Hiring cost in Sudan
