This was not her first visit to Sudan. Amina Nurhussein has made many trips to Khartoum as Minister of Health of Eritrea. She spoke of the ‘unquestioned’ close and friendly relations between the two neighbouring countries – Sudan and Eritrea. Her visit this time to Khartoum was to further strengthen the bilateral relations particularly in the health sector. She met her counterparts in Khartoum. She said that opening the doors for pharmaceuticals from Sudan to Eritrea would be mutually beneficial. Presently there is only one pharmaceutical manufacturer in Eritrea, a joint venture with Jordan, which provides only 30% of their domestic needs. The balance is imported. She is seen in this picture with Dr.Tarig Mohy Eldin Algemiabi Chairman & CEO of a leading pharmaceutical company in Sudan.
