A South Sudanese citizen is urging the Chinese government to expand their support to humanitarian organizations operating in the country.

Thon Gai who returned from China after participating in a three week’s seminar on Construction and Management of Inland Development Zone for developing countries said the Chinese should support the humanitarian sector.

“My request is that let them also do more on humanitarian sector. Since they are supporting other sectors in South Sudan, they should also be helping the humanitarian organizations that are supporting the most vulnerable people at the grassroots that the government may not be able to reach,” he said.

The training was meant to equip the developing countries with the necessary knowledge on how to fast track development.

The participants were also trained on a proper policy of approach and how to be consistent.

Gai said they were also taught on the open policy where it allowed people from around the world to trade with the Chinese.

Gai added that they also learnt how the Chinese political parties were supporting the business community and all the ideas that promote development.

He urged the government to develop policies that would allow other people to trade with South Sudan.

The seminar that was conducted in the city of Nanchang was in collaboration with South Sudan China Friendship Association (SSCHIFA), China Aid and the government of South Sudan.

Four participants from South Sudan took part in the seminar.

SSCHIFA is a South Sudanese based. It focuses on people to people relationship between the people of South Sudan and China.

It also links South Sudanese to scholarships offered by the people of China. It deals with private companies and individuals.

Apart from the Education sector, the association had previously sent South Sudanese students to train in areas of trade and economic programs, engineering, technology and development programs, medical care and public health among other fields.
