21 August 2015

In 1908, the Sudanese business community established the Sudan chamber of commerce, to achieve the following objectives:

  • To collect & import information useful for the trade in Sudan.
  • To give such information as may be in its power to the Sudan Government when it shall be asked.
  • To intervene with the Sudan Government, in all matters affecting the general interest of trade in all ways to be watchful of the interests of trade in Sudan.
  • To advice to the proper quarter all question brought to its notice, which may be in the opinion of the committee affect the general interests of trade in Sudan.
  • To correspond with other chambers of commerce when necessary.
  • To assist in the arrangement of arbitration & conciliation in case of commercial disputes when so requested,
  • To attend to the general business of the chamber.

The chamber decided on 29 November 1909 to start a monthly journal in order:

  • To have an official organ.
  • To keep the members and the public duly informed of matters of interest to the commercial community.
  • To call the attention to the possibilities of trade in the Sudan and to enlarge the sphere of the chamber.

In 1923, the Sudan Chambers Committee issued a set of Rules governing Arbitration held under the supervision of the chamber. A proclamation subsequently published in Sudan Government Gazette No. 422 of October 15, 1923 conferred upon the Arbitration power to administer oath to parties and witnesses in connecting with arbitration proceeding held under the said rules.

Following the establishment of additional powerful developmental projects and the expansion of markets in the Sudan the need arouse for establishing more chambers in different cities of Sudan.

In 1968, there were about 8 chambers in “Portsudan, Kasala, Alfasher  ...” The business community felt the need to unify the efforts of these chambers by establishing one body that works as an umbrella for these chambers. Sudan Chamber took this responsibility, and Sudanese Chambers of Commerce.

Other Unions, such as: the Union of Chambers of Industry, the Union of Chambers of  Transport, the Union of Chambers of Small Size Industries of Handcrafts and the Union of Chambers of Agriculture were established during the country's development process.

To gather all these unions in one body the government felt the need to establish another umbrella, The Sudan Businessmen and Employers Federation (SBEF) which was established in 1977. SBEF serve the following purposes: 

  • Encourage the development of economy and investment.
  • Participate in planning national development.
  • Establish a suitable environment for fruitful relations between the parties concerned with production in general and between all businessmen sectors particularly.
