Alright, it’s not that lucky either!
The largest country in the heart of Southern Africa and the third largest oil producer in the region, yet busted by the ruthless MNCs – that’s Sudan for you! Be it for economic exploitation or for geo-political importance, ‘infamous’ Sudan has always been in the news. Most developed countries had held this country under subjection for their selfish interests. But what does anyone do about it except of course, slamm on its face a ‘demeaning’ Human Rights Violation Report or (at best) exploit its resources (thanks to the likes of MNCs from India, China, Malaysia et al). The Darfur conflict in Sudan has triggered a genocide of sorts, wherein 2,00,000 people died in the conflict and 9,000 people were killed. What’s worse, other countries are taking advantage of this surreal situation!
While many western entities which are apprehensive of operating in such a political fiasco have pulled out of the region (like Talisman Inc. of Canada & OMV of Austria) and are just sitting tight and showering their usual “by the way” opinions, the ones in the East (like India & China) are utilising the incompetitive industrial environment in Sudan to set up petroleum infrastructure with organisations like PetroChina and ONGC. And ‘exploited’ Sudan sits quiet, guilty for having commited crimes & violated human rights it never knew!
