Turkish-Qatar textile factory named Sur Textile Factory, a joint venture between Sudanese and Qatari ministries of defence and Turkish businessmen opens in Khartoum, Sudan. Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, HE the Minister of State for Defence Affairs Dr Khalid bin Mohamed al-Attiyah, and Turkey’s Defence Minister Fikri Isik, inaugurated the new phase of Sur military and civilian clothing factory. The factory aims to provide high quality military, logistic and civilian products to the Middle East and Africa following global standards. During the inauguration ceremony, President Bashir said that the factory represents a successful model of administration and investment and new technology, including enhancement of capacities and transfer of expertise. In addition, the factory provides new initiatives to better the environment, social responsibility and maintain the welfare of the labourers. The president reaffirmed his determination to continue supporting the Sur factory to enable it to achieve its goals to serve the international society, by opening up global markets to service army alliances. Meanwhile, the Sudanese minister of industry said that the factory is considered a great leap in industrial development in the country. New production lines are scheduled to open next May. Besides covering the needs of the Sudanese army the SUR will export its production to Qatar, Turkey, Kenya and Somalia. A number of ministers and senior officials in the field of textile industry in Sudan, along with military and diplomatic officials from Qatar, Sudan and Turkey attended the ceremony. Founded in 2003 by the Sudanese Ministry of Defence and Turkish investors, SUR International Investment Company Ltd., was initially designed to fabricate the uniforms of the Sudanese army. In June 2013, the Qatari Armed forces joined the project and provided the needed funds to transform the factory into an integrated military textile company able to produce all textile products of the military and police forces in Africa besides Middle East countries.
