Abstract:

The authors have investigated comparative advantage of Sudan. The results show that Sudan has comparative advantage in 60 product lines. The authors have concluded that Sudan has capabilities of producing other products other than oil although the current base is too small. The authors also concluded that Sudan exports oil in a crude form hence it is loosing earnings by not refining the product.

Keywords: Comparative advantage, exports, international trade.
