Hui Yao, general manager, Chinese-owned Golden Nest Sudan Limited

‘My company, which specialises in construction, sent me here in 2007. There were no scheduled flights to Juba then, so we chartered one from ­Nairobi. There were no hotels either, only tents – three beds in each tent for $100 per person per night. There’s so much to be done. There’s no clean water, not enough medical help, poor housing. It is difficult financially. There isn’t enough money. We have 15 Chinese people working for us here, but most are local people. I don’t know how long I will stay.’
