H.E. Dr. Abdalla Hamdok
Republic of the Sudan
Mr. Cameron Hudson
Senior Fellow, Africa Center
Welcome and Introduction by
Mr. Frederick Kempe
President and CEO
One hundred days into his tenure as Prime Minister of Sudan, H.E. Dr. Abdalla Hamdok is poised to be the first Sudanese head of government to be welcomed by US officials in Washington since 1985. This watershed moment in US-Sudan relations highlights the fruits of a tumultuous year, marked by a popular protest movement that led to the removal of long-time ruler Omar al-Bashir in April. A civilian-led transitional government was formed in September, but its success hinges on sustained reforms. Determined to deliver on the public demand of “Freedom, Peace, and Justice,” Prime Minister Hamdok must confront significant structural and political constraints, while also working to lift remaining US sanctions and stabilize the Sudanese economy.
Please join the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 5, for an exclusive conversation with Sudanese Prime Minister H.E. Dr. Abdalla Hamdok on the state of US-Sudan relations and the progress of the civilian-led transitional government.
