Now that South Sudan has gained their independence from the North, the next step is to build the economy. South Sudan relies on oil for 98% of their income which is a grossly huge figure. However, the government now hopes to move the culture to more of an agricultural focus so that they do not have to rely so heavily on oil. It is essential for South Sudan to find another source of income besides oil because they depend on the profits to fund their government, and In order to remain an independent nation they must find another source of income in order to ensure their freedom. South Sudan is an extremely rich country in the way of resources and is a very fertile land. They hope to attract the interests of both the public and private sectors throughout the world to encourage economic growth and establish themselves as a country.
