Dividing the Nile

Chapter seven complements the prior chapter's focus by analyzing efforts to promote the export of Sudanese goods to Egypt during the same time period. Greater attention is paid to agricultural goods in this analysis, since there was little manufacturing in the Sudan at the time. Similar administrative obstructionism was a key cause of the failure to develop Egyptian reliance on Sudanese goods, but basic supply and demand forces—largely immune to manipulation—were tremendously influential in determining annual export levels. Although not alone in its responsibility, the Egyptian administration certainly hampered the import of Sudanese goods, especially Sudanese livestock restricted by Egyptian veterinary-department regulations designed to protect domestic animals. The chapter ends with a brief examination of the local entrepreneurs involved in the efforts to improve economic relations, concluding that most of these individuals had been active for decades and were confined to the least lucrative or administratively least important economic activities.
