Bangladeshi peace keepers

Bangladeshi peace keepers have been working in South Sudan since 2005,[1] initially as part of UNMIS and since 2011 as part of UNMISS. Apart from maintaining the law enforcement in South Sudan, Bangladeshi peace keepers have also extended their contribution in providing free services of specialized doctors among the people as well as building public infrastructure.[2]

Social development

Several Bangladesh based NGOs including BRAC are operating in South Sudan and are mainly working in the areas of microfinance, agricultural development, community development, education etc.[3]

Agricultural cooperation

An MoU has been signed by the Agricultural Ministry of Bangladesh and the Agricultural and Forest Ministry of South Sudan to jointly produce rice, lentil, oil, cotton and other crops on the South Sudanese lands leased by Bangladesh to ensure food security of both the countries. The two countries will also exchange training, technologies and expertise for increased agricultural productivity.[4]

Trade and investment

In 2012, a high level Bangladesh delegation led by Gowher Rizvi visited South Sudan to explore potential areas for Bangladeshi investment in South Sudan.[5][6]
