UNMISS Chinese engineers implemented the $1.4m project, which in addition to the apron, included constructing a 2.1 kilometre access road and a 160 by 25 metre taxiway.

They also rehabilitated the 1,900 by 30 metre runway surface.

“UNMISS in consultation with state authorities and in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding (between the two parties) embarked on this worthy project that we are proud to inaugurate today,” said UNMISS Director of Mission Support Stephani Scheer.

Acting UNMISS State Coordinator Numa Shams said the project was symbolic of results that could be achieved from cooperation and trust between the mission and state government.
