SSBEA inaugurates new executive body in Juba

South Sudan Business Employers’ Alliance (SSBEA) has inaugurated a new executive body aimed at transforming the business sector by working with the government to end the hiking market prices.

The new SSBEA executive promise to implement the R-ARCSS and the SPLM economic policy that will propel South Sudan into a prosperous and industrialized country.

The launching ceremony was held at the SPLM secretariate in Juba on Monday presided over by the SPLM secretary for syndicate and popular organization, Dr. Antony Joseph.

Dr. Joseph says the new executive body has replaced the previous body which was headed by Ayii Dwang. He says the old body had been dissolved  due to some power wrangling and mistrust among the members.

’The business community had a lot of wrangling. They have never put the aspiration of the people of South Sudan in their activities. There was a wrangling between the former chairperson of the business community, Uncle Ayii Dwang who quarrel with some of his members’’

He said that this dispute was later resolved, and the committee led by the chairperson was given one year to lead the institution and that transition has come to an end this month.

Joseph urges the new business community executive members to improve the business sector in South Sudan.

“This is a brand new business community. The former I mentioned here was Ayii Dwang. But today our chairperson is Abdallah Mayiik brand new with a new constitution, with a new certificate, it has nothing to do with the former. They are going to be in this office to do their job serving our people, bring goods, deliver the services this country moves on’’

Cde. Abdalla Mayik Kulang the new chairperson of SSBEA in his remarks appealed to the government leaders, united nations, international organizations, and civil society to accord his executive body with cooperation.

He also called upon the regional organizations including the East African Community, IGAD, The AU and EU to support the South Sudan business employers Alliance to achieve its objectives.
