The secession of South Sudan has rendered the political, security, economic and social situation of Sudan fragile. Thus, the IMF packages and foreign aids had yielded some positive returns on Sudan economy recovery.

We analyzed the effects of foreign aids IMF packages on Inflation and exchange rates using an augmented Fischer-Easterly model for the panel data from 1985-2014. The results show that Sudan will face in upcoming five years gap in balance of payments and debts crisis harder than current situation compared to those of another country who adopted the same policies becomes lower over time.
