Juba, February 16, 2019 (SSNA) — Africa is rapidly becoming one of the world fast-growing grain importer as some land-locked African nation face difficulties in terms of deliveries.

A report, published in the world-grain website points out that South Sudan is one of the countries in the East Africa region, lacking port services.
