Sudan’s annual inflation hit a new record peak of 212.3% in September of 2020, driven by hikes in bread and vegetable prices as well as increasing transport fares. Inflation has been rising in Sudan since before the military’s overthrow of longtime President Omar al-Bashir in April 2019 amid a popular uprising against his rule. The transitional government is struggling to revive the economy amid a huge budget deficit and widespread shortages of essential goods. The country’s economy has also suffered from Sudan’s inclusion on Washington’s terror blacklist, decades-long US sanctions and the 2011 secession of the country’s oil-rich south. source: Sudan Central Bureau of Statistics
