South Korea to Build New Capital for Southern Sudan

The new country of Southern Sudan, officially declaring its independence in July, will have help from the national development arm of South Korea in building a proposed new capital city.

The state-run developer has pledged to serve as the main consultant in the process of building what's proposed to be a brand new city.

"Under the agreement with the government of southern Sudan, LH Corp said it would offer the African country technical support to draw up a master plan.

'Southern Sudan's government, currently based in the southern city of Juba, is considering development of the new capital in line with its new status as an independent state,' LH Corp said in a statement."
