The African Union-United Nations peacekeeping mission held a seminar, 'How to do business with the UN', for 300 Sudanese companies and business owners in the capital city.

Unamid's day-long seminar is aimed at enabling Sudanese business owners to understand the United Nations’ policies and procedures related to business partnerships as well as participate in tenders issued by the Mission.

The event took place at the Corinthia Hotel in Khartoum on Monday. It is part of capacity-building for business owners to encourage effective partnerships worldwide.

Some 300 Sudanese companies attended the event along with high-ranking officials from the government of Sudan.

“The UN, in general, and Unamid, in particular, can benefit greatly through increased collaboration with business partners from the host countries that we serve in,” said the Mission's Joint Special Representative Martin Uhomoibhi.

“Our work is not done in isolation; therefore, creating opportunities to build the knowledge and capacity of our Sudanese business colleagues is a priority for us.”
