Dear visitor,

Welcome to the web page of the Delegation of the European Union to Sudan.   This site is here to help you better understand our mission, role and activities in the country.

As the Head of Delegation of the European Union to Sudan, one of my key tasks is to ensure that the EU is well engaged with the local, regional and international partners towards peace, stability and  democratic reforms in Sudan. This includes good neighbourly relations with Sudan's neighbours and jointly confronting violent extremism in the region. 

I intend to suggest genuine efforts to build peace, to achieve national reconciliation through inclusive dialogue and to strengthen respect for human rights.  In parallel, eradication of poverty, addressing irregular migration, and strengthened food security, health and education are few of the key areas for the EU development assistance to Sudan.

I am keen to meet as many  Sudanese stakeholders as possible from all backgrounds, to exchange views, listen and learn about their aspirations and hopes for tomorrow.  I read a lot about the Sudanese hospitability, rich culture and tolerance.  I want to embark on this journey together. 

May I also invite you to share with the EU Delegation your feedback about how we can make this website more informative. You are welcome to interact with us at the #EU in Sudan on Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you,

Ambassador Jean-Michel Dumond
