Protests in Sudan over ICTSI concession

Port workers have come out strongly against a 20-year concession contract with ICTSI.

Last month it was announced that International Container Terminal Services, Inc of the Philippines (ICTSI) had signed a 20-year concession with the sea Ports Corporation of Sudan to operate the Port Sudan container terminal, though little was known about the process under which the concession was awarded.


Al Jazeera is now reporting that the concession is viewed as a “surprise” at the port and has run into strong opposition, including a blockade of the container terminal by port workers last week.


One of the main issues, according to Al Jazeera, is that the concession is with ICTSI Middle East DMCC, which is headquartered in Dubai, and there are worries that the deal is a front for the UAE to take control of all of Sudan’s Red Sea Ports.


Mohammmed Vall’s video report can be viewed on Al Jazeera.
