Coinciding roughly with negotiations leading to the 1936 Anglo–Egyptian Treaty, Egyptian nationalists established a variety of administrative positions or practices designed specifically to improve economic relations with the Sudan. Initiated by the Royal Agricultural Society, and quickly supported by a broad group of Egyptian entrepreneurs, a series of economic missions was sent south to explore opportunities. Following the initial missions, institutions were established to facilitate economic cooperation in a consistent fashion. These institutions included an official permanent committee of the Sudan, a Khartoum exhibition for Egyptian manufactures, and the dispatch of an economic expert to the Sudan. The general objective was to improve interactions between investors, merchants, agriculturalists, and other stakeholders in the Nile Valley. This chapter argues that these institutional developments were certainly well-intentioned, and seemingly appropriate, but they were neither well funded nor organized—and should have been begun decades earlier.
