    I think it was a good decision for a country like Sudan. Government expenditures will be reduced by one day on weekly basis because when offices and schools will remain close on one day, associated expenses will not occur like electricity, fuel etc. On the other hand it will increase workload on other days.

    Administrative expenses are the biggest issue for underdeveloped countries and its a good move by Sudanese government to cut off such expenses by adopting 2-day weekend. Alternatively government can reduce working hours. Efficient use of resources will be helpful to reduce the government expenditure. cv help Thanks
