Xawaaladda Qurbajooggu waxay kaalin weyn kaga jirtaa dhaqaalaha dalka JSL’

Xawaaladda Qurbajooggu waxay kaalin weyn kaga jirtaa dhaqaalaha dalka JSL'

Marka loo eego Warbixinta Socdaalka Adduunka (IOM Report 2022), dadka qurbajoogga ah ama ka maqan dalalkii ay u dhasheen ayay tiradoodu gaadhay 281 malyuun oo 3.5% ka badan intay ahaayeen 2019 una dhiganta 3.6% mujtamaca caalamka, halka xawaaladda adduunku gaadhay 702bn bilyan ka yar 2.4% 2019, gaar ahaan wadamada soo korayana ay noqotay 540bn bilyan  ka yar 1.48%  2019 saamaynta Covid-19 awgeed. Xawaaladda soo galaysa wadamada soo koraya ayaa la saadaaliyay inay gaadhi doonto $5.4 tirilyan 2030, taasoo u dhigmaysa dhaqaalaha guud ee Afrika intuu marayay 2019. Ahmiyadda ay xawaaladdani u leedahay dhaqaalaha bulshada awgeed, waxay Qaramada Midoobay asteeyeen 16-ka June "Maalinta Caalamiga ah ee Xawaaladda Qoyska" (International Day of Family Remittances) sannadkii 2015, taasoo laga xuso gaar ahaan wadamada dhaqaalahoodu aad ugu tiirsan yahay xawaaladda,isla markaana ah fursad looga faa'iidaysto in laga hadlo arrimaha khuseeya, loona mahad celiyo dadka qurbajoogga ah ee usoo xawilaya lacagta dadkooda iyo danaha guud ee dalkoodaba.

 

Somaliland waxay leedahay qurbajoog badan oo inkastoo aan tirakoob sugan laga haynin, lagu qiyaaso ku dhawaad hal malyuun qof,  badankooduna ku dhaqan yihiin Galbeedka Yurub, Woqooyiga Maraykanka, Ustaraaliya, iyo Dalalka  Iskaashiga Gacanka. Qurbajooggani waxay wakhti dheer kaalin waxku ool ah kaga jiraan dhismaha qaranka - koboca dhaqaalaha, horumarinta bulshada, siyaasadda, hannaanka dimuqraadiyadda, ictiraaf raadinta, guud ahaan geeddi socodka horumarineed iyo inay is garab taagaan dadkooda xilliyada adag sida gurmadka abaaraha iwm. 

 

Doorka qurbajoogga ee dalka waxaa ka mid ah kan xawaaladda lacagta oo aad usoo kobcaya illaa 2017 kadib, waxanay qayb weyn ka tahay (22%-50%) dhaqaalaha guud ee dalka oo lagu qiyaaso saddex bilyan ($3bn+)Waxaa hore loogu qiyaasay inta u dhaxaysa $500 malyuun illaa $900 malyuun (NDP II, 2017). Balse marka loo eego warbixinaha dambe ee Baanka Dhexe, xawaaladda soo gasha Somaliland ayaa gaadhay $1.4bn bilyan 2018, halka uu Baankudiiwaangeliyay $1.3bn bilyan 2020, taasoo ka dhigan in hoos u dhaca ka dhashay saamayntii Covid-19 ee sannadkaasi noqotay 6.8%, ahna wax aad uga yar hoos u dhicii Baanka Adduunku saadaaliyay oo ahaa 20%. Ka sokow xayiraadihii (Lockdowns) cuslaa ee waddamadu soo rogeen, waxaa hadana sidii la filayay sabab u ahaa inaan is bedel weyn oo hoos dhac ku iman nidaamka xawaaladda  Somaliland, horumarka xagga dirista lacagaha ku dhisan habka fudud ee telefoonka ama elaktarooniga ah (Digitalization system and cashless money transfers) ee shirkadaha xawaaladaha ah iyo bangiyada dalku suurtageliyeen, isla markaana ay sahlayaan internet-ka iyo isgaadhsiinta ku fidsan dalka oo dhan.  

 

Nidaamka xawaaladda ayaa ah mid soo jireen ah oo ku dhisan dhaqanka bulshada ee isku xidhnaanshaha, is xidhiidhinta iyo is taageeridda leh heer qoys iyo heer bulshaba. Waxaana xusid mudan in markasta oo si dimuqraadi iyo nabadgelyo ah ay doorashooyinku uga qabsoomaan Somaliland uu heerka imaatinka booqashada gaaban iyo soo guurista rasmiga ah, maalgashiga ganacsiyada yaryar iyo kuwa heerka dhexe, iibsiga dhulka, dhismaha guryaha iyo hantida kaleba aad u kordhaan Tusaale, xog ururin Xafiiska Qurbajooggu ka sameeyay 150 ganacsi kala duwan oo ku yaalla Hargeysa, ayaa lagu ogaaday in 97% ka mid ah meheradahaas la furay intii u dhaxaysay 2011 iyo 2017, si la mid ah dadka ka soo degay Madaarka Caalamiga ah ee Cigaal 2018 ayaa gaadhay 133,798, tiradaas oo inta badan ah qurbajoogga dalka u dhashay maadaama oo qulqulka dalxiiska ajaanibku aad ugu yaryahay Somaliland, socdaalka ujeedooyinka kale lehina uu xadidan yahay ama waxyar ka noqonayo tiradaas. .

 

[[Inkastoo aan si rasmi ah loo daraasayn, waxaa lagu qiyaasaa in 30% lacagta xawaaladda loo soo diro ujeedooyin maalgashi ganacsi iyo sii-horumarin ganacsi, halka dhammaan inta kalena tahay xawaaladda qoyska ee baahiyaha nolosha sida cuntada, caafimaadka, waxbarashada iwm. magaalada iyo miyigaba. 

 

Waxaan sidoo kale la dafiri karin, in xawaaladdan qurbajooggu udub dhexaad u tahay shaqada shirkadaha xawaaladaha iyo bangiyada dalka oo iyaguna ah aag shaqo abuur ballaadhan oo kumanaan muwaadin ka hawlgalaan gudaha iyo debadaba.

 

Haseyeeshee, dadka ugu badan ee illaa hadda lacagtan usoo xawila ehelkooda iyo ujeedooyinka danta guud ba, waa jiilashii koowaad (1st generations) ee iyagoo dad waaweyn ah ka tegay dalka, waxay taasi markaa u baahan tahay in dadaal badan immika la geliyo jiilasha soo koraya ee qurbaha ku dhashay ama iyagoo carruur ah la dhoofiyay (2nd and 3rd generations) si loo dhaxal siiyo inay sii wadaan kaalinta waalidkood ee xidhiidhka dalka, waana masuuliyad aanay  waalidka oo kaliyi waxka qaban karin ee u baahan in laga yeesho siyaasad qaran oo la fuliyo iyo barnaamijyo ku habboon oo laga wada shaqeeyo. 

 

Sidoo kalewaxaa lagama maarmaan ah in la qorsheeyo habab faa'iido wadareed leh oo looga faa'iidaysan karo qulqulka xawaaladdani muddada ay jirto ee weli jiilashii koowaad wax soo dirayaan. Qurbajoog badan oo ay ka mid yihiin dad gaadhay xilligii hawlgabka shaqo, ayaa jecel inay usoo guryo-noqdaan dalkooda ama iyagoo maqan ba wax soo maalgashadaan, kuwaasooraadinaya fursado habaysan ama abaabulan (Well-regulated investments) oo la aamini karo, ay ku darsadaan woxoogaaga ay hayaan oo wax uga soo noqon karaan, si culayska xawaaladduna uga yaraado. Qaarbaa marar badan isku daygooda gacmo khaldan ku hagaaga oo khasaare soo gaadhaa.. Fursadihi la maalgashan lahaana way ka jiraan dalka, waxaase loo baahan yahay in la qorsheeyo, lana diyaariyo hannaan dhiirrigelinaya oo lagu kalsoonaado. 

 

Gebogebadii, waxaan hambalyo iyo bogaadin la wadaagayaa qurbajoogga jaalliyadaha Somaliland iyo guud ahaan shacabka.Somaliland Xuska Maalinta Caalamiga ah ee Xawaaladda Qoyska 16-ka June 2022 awgeed.

Xog-Waranka Xoghayihii Shir-Weynihii Aayo Ka-Tashiga Beelaaha Somaliland Ee Burco 27 April Ilaa 5 May 1991, Xaaji Aadan Axmed


Xog-Waranka Xoghayihii Shir-Weynihii Aayo Ka-Tashiga Beelaaha Somaliland Ee Burco 27 April Ilaa 5 May 1991, Xaaji Aadan Axmed Diiriye. W/Q: Miyir Cali Xuseen

 

Shir-weynihii aayo ka-tashiga beelaha Somaliland ee magaalada Burco oo ahaa shirkii ugu cuslaa abid ee ay iskugu yimaadaan beelaha wada dega Jamhuuriyada Somaliland, oo magaalada Burco ka qabsoomay 27kii Abriil ilaa 5tii May, 1991kii.  Shirkan oo ay goob-joog ka ahaayeen dhamaan madax-dhaqameedka, waxgaradka, ganacsatada, siyaasinta beelaha Somaliland iyo xubnihii iyo hogaankii ururkii SNM, kaasi oo ay beel kastaaba iskeed ah isu-soo abaabushay sidii ay uga qayb noqon lahayd go'aamada iyo aayo ka-tashagii ay isugu yimaadeen guud ahaan ummadda reer Somaliland.

Shirkan Burco ayaa waxa lagu go'aamiyey qaraarkii lagu bayaamiyey in Jamhuuriyada Somaliland ka noqotey midowgii labadii dal ee Waqooyiga (Somaliland) iyo Koonfurta Soomaaliya, ee ay ku midoobeen 1dii Julaay, 1960kii. Isla markaasina waxa lagaga dhawaaqay madaxbanaanida iyo gooni isku-taagii Jamhuuriyada Somaliland.

Shirkan oo ay ka horeeyeen shirar dhawr ah oo gogol xaadh u ahaa oo ay si gaar gaara iyo si guud-ba isugu yimaadeen haldoorka iyo wax-garadka beelaha Somaliland, oo ay ka mid ahaayeen shirkii deegaanka Oog, shirkii deegaanada Tulli iyo Boorama iyo shirkii walaalayn-ta iyo isa-saamaxaada beelaha Somaliland ee lagu qabtay magaalada Berbera 15-27 Feebarwari 1991kii, oo ahaa shirkii lagu go'aansaday in dhamaan beelaha Somaliland si wada-jira uga soo qayb-galaan shir-weyne balaadhan oo ay kaga tashanayaan aayahooda iyo jiritaankooda danbe oo ka dhacaaya magaalada Burco, kaasi oo ah kan la iskugu yimi.

Shir-weynaha aayo ka-tashiga beelaha Somaliland ee Burco ayaa waxa todobaadkii ugu horeeyey ay guurtidii metelaysay beelahu ka doodeen halka looga dhaqaaqaayo xaalada dawlad la'aaneed ee dalka ka jirtay iyo sidii beelaha Somaliland u samaysan lahaayeen nidaam maamul oo ay u dhan yihiin iyo sidoo kale sidii sees adag loogu dhigilahaa nabad waarta oo ay ku wada noolaadaan guud ahaan beelaha Somaliland.

Xoghayihii shirkan Burco, Xaaji Aadan Axmed Diiriye oo ugu horeyn ka waramaaya abaabulkii hore ee shirankan aayo ka-tashiga beelaha Somaliland ee Burco iyo ajandeyaashii iyo ujeedooyinkii loo abaabulay, ayaa waxa uu hadalkiisa ku bilaabay sidan:

 "Markii SNM ay dalka xoraysay ee lagu guulaystay halgankii mudada badan socday ee aynu ku ridaynay rajiimkii Siyaad Barre, waxay SNM qabatay oo ay gogol u fidisay guud ahaan beelaha dega Somaliland oo qaybina SNM ahayd, qaybina aanay raacsanayn oo ay dhanka kale ahaayeen. Gogoshaa SNM u fidisay beelaha ayay isugu yimaadeen, waxgaradkii cuqaashii, Salaadiintii guud ahaan beelaha Somaliland wada dega min Ceelaayo illaa Lawyacaddo, waxaanay SNM isku dayaysay in ay ergooyinka beeluhu gaar u soo wada hadlaan oo isa soo turxaan bixiyaan, la isna saamaxo oo dib u heshiisiin ay madaxdhaqameedka iyo wax garadka beeluhu soo wada sameeyaan.

Markii ergooyinka beeluhu gaarkooda u gudo-galeen arrimaha aayo ka tashiga ummadda waa la xisaabtamay oo waxaa la is waydiiyay guud ahaan dalkii Somaliland ee Ingiriisku gumaysan jiray ay faa'iido ka hayaan midnimadii ay la galeen Soomaaliyadii Talyaanigu gumaysan jiray ee ay horumar ka arkeen intii ay jirtay wixii la odhan jiray Jamhuuriyaddii Soomaaliya, waxaanay noqotay   dhan kasta markii laga eegay sadex shay oo labana ay Soomaaliya ku danaysanaysay midna ay dirqi ku hirgashay.

Sadexdaa shay ee  wax faa'iido ah laga arkay waxay kala ahaayeen dhismaha dekeda Berbera oo waxa ka soo baxa ay reer Soomaaliya qaadan jireen illaa maalintii la midoobay, wadada laamiga ah ee isku xidhaysay Laas-caanood illaa Dilla oo ay boobka khayraadka reer Somaliland u soo mari jireen mida sadexaadna waxay ahayd wershadii sibidhka oo dirqi ku hir gashay Maamulkii reer Soomaaliyana ku dedaalayeen in wershadaana Koonfur laga dhiso dhagaxa sibidhkana buuraha Berbera  in laga qaado  taasoo markii dambe dirqi lagaga dhisay Berbera, waxa kaliya ee 60-kii illaa 1991-kii   innaga soo gaadhay intaasay noqotay. Waxaa kale oo wax la iska weydiiyay maxaynu dhibaato ka dhaxalay."

Xaaji Aadan Axmed oo ka waramaaya sidii shirka loogu lafo-guray khasaarihii iyo wax-qabad la'aantii shacbiga Somaliland ka dhaxleen midowgii ay Koonfurta Soomaaliya la galeen, ayaa waxa uu yidhi:

"Khasaarihii ka dhashay ee reer Somaliland midnimadii 1960-kii ka soo gaadhayna wuxuu noqday mid aan la qiyaasi karin oo dad, dal iyo duunyaba saameeyay. Waxaa la waayay gobol kaliya oo ka mid ah Somaliland oo hal mashruuc oo faa'iido leh laga hir-galiyay, waxaa laga quustay wax kaliya oo la taaban karo oo guud ahaan bulshada Somaliland ka heshay midnimadii, taas oo min Lawyacado illaa  Laas-qoray ay ka sinnaayeen dib u dhaca iyo boobka ay ku hayeen madaxdii kala dambaysay ee reer Soomaaliya. Intaa waxaa dheeraad ku sii ahaa gumaadkii iyo xasuuqii uu kula kacay qaybo ka mid ah beelaha reer Somaliland, waxaa kale oo intaa sii dheeraa in uu taliskii Siyaad Barre isagoo kursigiisa ku sii adkaysanaya in uu colaado kala dhex dhigay beelaha wada dega Somaliland"

Xaaji Aadan Axmed oo sidoo kale faahfaahinaaya sidii loogu dhawaaqay go'aankii ay bulshada reer Somaliland dib ugula soo noqonaayeen dawladnimadda iyo qaran-nimadooda Somaliland ee muddada sodonka sanadood ah kaga maqnayd midowgii lagu khasaaray ee ay dadweynaha reer Somaliland ku hoday, walaalnimo jacaylka iyo raadintii ay baadi-goobka ugu jireen in lamideeyo guud ahaan bulshada Soomaaliyeed ee ku nool Geeska Afrika ama shanti Soomaaliyeed. Isagoo faahfaahinaayana waxaa uu yidhi:  

"Markii la isla gartay in waxaas oo dhibaato ahi ay ka soo gaadheen bulshadda reer Somaliland midnimadii ay la galeen koonfurta waxaa lagu go'aansaday oo la isla qaatay in dadka reer Somaliland oo isku dhan wax garadkii beeluhuna u wada joogaan in lala soo noqdo Madaxbannaanidii 1960-kii ay reer Somaliland iska tuureen gaarkoodana isu taagaan,  markaas ayaan ku dhawaaqay  la soo noqoshada gooni isu taagga Jamhuuriyadda Somaliland in guud ahaan ergada beelaha wada dega Somaliland isla qaateen intaa ka dibna go'aankii ay ergada beeluhu isla qaateen ee aan ku dhawaaqay ayaanu u soo gudbinay shirweynihii SNM oo  markii hore intay beelaha gogosha u fidiyeen isu daayay shirkaas oo uu guddoominayay Madaxweyne ku-xigeenkii hore ee Somaliland Xasan Ciise Jaamac oo markaa ahaa Guddoomiye ku xigeenka ururka SNM intaa ka dibna waxaa halkaa si rasmi ah lagaga dhawaaqay dawladda Somaliland."

Aadan Axmed oo hadalka sii-wata kana waramaaya, sidii uu dareenkoodu ahaa ergadii beelaha Somailand shirkan ku matalaysay maalintaa ay beeluhu isla qaateen la soo noqoshada Qarannimada Somaliland iyo wuxuu ka leeyahay hadalka   siyaasiyiinta Somaliland diidka ah ee ku dooda Somaliland looma dhammayn go'aanka qadiyada Somaliland ee beeshii SNM ayaa samaysatay, Xaaji Aadan oo arimahaas faahfaahinayaa ayaa waxaa uu yidhi:

"Horta SNM markii ay dalka qabteen ee ay dalka xoreeyeen waxay gogol nabadeed isugu keeneen guud ahaan beelihii Somaliland, SNM-na waxay waxgaradka beelaha u daysay in ay aayaha ummadda ka soo tallo bixiyaan dibu-heshiisiin dhab ahna ka dhex dhaliyaan beelihii colaadda laga dhex abuuray. Ergadii beelaha oo isu dhan ayaana gaadhay go'aanka Somaliland lagu dhisay SNM-na ula timi, hoggaankii SNM-na taasay nala qaateen.  Laakiin siyaasiyiinta Somaliland diidka ah ee dhalasho ahaan ka soo jeeda dalkan, waxaan u arkaa fikirkooda Somaliland diidka ahi  inuu  ka dhashay  oo kaliya  mansab ay dalka ka waayeen  iyo dhaqankii aynu ka dhaxalay nidaamkii aynu la midawnay oo ka shaqayn jiray oo kaliya isku dirka iyo hurinta colaadda,  laakiin waxaan odhan lahaa Somaliland qasab iyo caadifad laguma dhisin ee rabitaan dadwayne iyo is xisaabin wixii midnimada dhib iyo dheef reer Somaliland ka dhaxleen ayaa la soo noqoshada Qaranimada lagu dhisay waanan hayaa waraaqihii ay wada saxeexeen waxgaradkii beelaha Somaliland oo mid kastaba deegaanka uu  ka socdo iyo magiciisu ku saxeexan yahay"

Dood iyo falan-qayn dheer kadib waxa ay ergadii shirka ku matalaysay beeluhu isla qaateen in dib loola soo noqdo madaxbanaanidii Qaran-nimada Somaliland, isla markaasina bulshada reer Somaliland ay samaystaan nidaam dawladeed oo ay gaarkooda u leeyihiin.

Qaabkii Xaaji Aadan Axmed Ugu Dhawaaqay Go'aanadii Shir-Weynihii Beelaha Somaliland Ee Burco:

Hadaba, hadii aynu si mugle oo faahfaahsan isku dul-taagno isla markaasina ugu guda-dhacno, dulucda go'aanadii shir-weynahan aayo ka-tashiga beelaha Somaliland ee Burco, ee lagaga dhawaaqay gooni Isku-taaga Qaranimada Somaliland.

Si aynu aad ugu dhadhamino uguna dhuuxno dareenka fog iyo dulucda durugsan ee go'aankan masiiriga ee shirkan lagaga dhawaaqay salka ku hayo, waxa aynu dul-istaagidoonaa isla markaasina ku faahfaahinaynaa guud ahaan qaabkii uu u qabsoomay shirkani iyo dhamaan khudbadii uu madasha ka akhriyey xoghayihii shirkan aayo ka-tashiga ummadda Somaliland Xaaji Aadan Axmed Diiriye, markii uu ku dhawaaqaayey ee uu shirweynaha kasoo jeedinaayey.

Furitaankii shirkan oo uu shir-guudoominaayey Gudoomiye Ku-xigeenkii ururkii SNM, Mujaahid Xasan Ciise Jaamac isla markaasina ahaa Madaxweyne Kuxigeenkii ugu horeeyey ee Somaliland, ayaa isaga oo hadalka kusoo dhawaynaaya, Xoghayihii ama Afhayeenkii shirkan aayo ka-tashiga ummadda Somaliland, Md. Xaaji Aadan Axmed Diiriye, waxa uu hadalka ku bilaabay sidan:

"Bismilaahi Raxmaani Raxiim, shirka u galimayno imika sidii shirarkii hore aynu u gali jirnay, waxaan u gud-bayaa gudidii odayaasha ahayd ee aynu u saarnay inay ka doodaan go'aanada shirka, oo ay isla, afgartaan, ka wadda tashadaan, falanqeeyaan, waxoogaana haasaawaan, dabadeetana ay inoo fududeeyaan oo ay inoo keenan wixii ay isla meel dhigeen. Odayaasha markaynu leenahay, musheekhdu way ku jirtaa, Odayaashu aad iyo aad bay u mahadsan yihiin. Qoddobaddii ay inoo soo diyaar gareeyeen, waxaa halkan ka akhriyi doona Mujaahid Aadan Axmed Diiriye, oo kamida ragii halganka, gaar ahaan xaga abaabulka aad iyo aadka uga shaqeeyey, ku soo dhawow Aadan"

Intaa kadib Xaaji Aadan Axmed Diiriye, oo hadalka qaatay ayaa waxa uu isna halkiisa ku bilaabay sidan:

"Bismmilaahi raxmaani raxiim, marka hore dadka sharafta leh, waxa aan usoo gudbinayaa, salaanta islaamku isku salaamo, Asalaama calaykum warax-matulaahi wabarakaatu. Marka labaad, sidaa uu sheegay, Gudoomiyaha shirku, shalayto waxay ahayd maalintii fursada laysku siiyey, inay isa-soo arkaan, oo arinta si ay usoo jilciyaan una soo sheekaystaan, Ergooyinka ka kala yimid beelaha waqooyi degen ee walaalaha ah.

Markaa kulankaa, oo ka dhacay magaaladan burco, oo ay iskugu yimaadeen Salaadiinta, Culimo Aw-diinka, iyo odayaasha waxgaradka ahi, waxa lagaga dooday oo si dheer loogu lafo guray, qodobadi, hor-yimid shirkan ee muhiimka, ahaa ee loo baahnaa. Qodobadaas oo si weyn looga dooday, wixii kasoo baxayna, halkan baan idiinka sheegi doona. Anigoo ku dadaalaya in aanan idinku dheeraynin hadalka, oo ka tix-galinaaya, bacadka la-fadhiyo, waxaan kusoo koobayaa, in aan qodobada uun soo qaato. Xaaji Aadan Axmed Diiriye oo hadalka sii-wata ayaa waxa uu yidhi

1. Qodobka koobaad, qodobada la soo qaaday, qodobka koobaad wuxuu ahaa, in woqooyi gaar isku taago iyo in koonfur la-raaco baa laga hadlaayey, oo ajandaha qodobka koowaad ahaa, qodobkaa muddo dheerbaa laga dooday aad baana loo lafa-guray, Waxa laga xisaabtamay, oo dib loo mililicay, 31-kii sano ee aynu dawlada ahayn, wixii faa'iido ahaa ee aynu ka helnay, haddii aynu waqooyiga nahay iyo wixii khasaare ina soo gaadhay-baa si dhaba looga xisaabtamay. Muu ahayn shir caadifadeed, oo si shaqsi ah arimaha loo qaadanayo ama la-iskaga dul cararaayo, mana ahayn shir afduuba oo wax la kala maroor-sanaayo, wuxuu ahaa shir si dimuqraadiyada, oo cid waliba iyada oo xora codkeeda iyo fikraday qabto kasoo jeedinayso, ayuu ahaa. Arintaa markii si dheer looga xisaabtamay waxay noqotay, in 31kii sano waxa faa'iido ah oo la taaban karo, saddex qodob ayaa laga helay, oo iyaga laftoodu ku yimid, dhibaato iyo tacab, hawl badana loo soo maray oo dadka inta xog-ogaalka ahi ogtahay. Waxaana weeyi dekeda Berbera, warshadda sibidhka ee Iyana barbera ka samaysan iyo waddooyinka laamayda ah. Wax kale oo waqooyi laga sameeyey waa la waayey, kuwaasina sida ay ku yimaadeen waa la-wada og yahay.

Waxaynu og-nahay warshadda sibidhku inay mararka qaarkood gaadhay in koonfur laga sameeyo dhagaxana laga gurro halkay immika ka samaysan tahay, illaa xadkaa inay gaadhay-baa la ogyahay oo dadka xog-ogaalkii og-yahay, Wax-faa'iido, ahna intaasa laga soo qaaday. Waxa dhinaca kale ku qormay oo iyana timi, in khasaaraha aynu hada og-nahay, ee uu u weyn yahay, burburka iyo baa'ba haysta ee ka muuqda magaalooyinkeenii, ee naf iyo maalba, baaba'ay ee loo baaba'ay, inay ka yimaadeen is-raacii ay israaceen Koonfur iyo Waqooyi ayaa halkaa kasoo baxay, markaa waxay noqotay marka labadii la isku miisaamay in miisaankii u badan yahay, dhinaca khasaaraha, sida awgeed waxa la isku raacay, oo shirkii isku raacay, bal aragnay is-raacii wuxuu inoo dhalaye, inuu waqooyi gaar isku taago, oo aanu koonfur raacin, oo aynu teena kala barkhad baxno, oo teena tijaabino, oo waqooyi gaar isku taago ayaa la isku raacay, qodobkaa koobaad.

2. Qodobka labaad, wuxuu ahaa in lagu dhaqmo shareecada islaamka, qoddobkaa isaga ah ruuntii dood badan mayeelan, markii la eegay shuruucda kale, magic kastaba haloo bixiyee bili aadmku sameyo, ee aynu kusoo dhaqmi jirnay. Markii la eegay dhaqan xumadda, iyo dhaqanka ka lumay dadkii, mudadii dheeraa ee uu xukumayey daaquudki dalka laga xoreeyey, uu inagu abuuray, ee aynu gaadhnay heer xaaranta iyo xalaasha aynaan kala garanyn, ee xarantiiba la xalaashaday, markii aynu eegnay, dadkeena oo aqlabiyadiisu imika tahayba, ama xoogiisu yahay, dadkii dhashay mudadaa ama ku caqliyeystayba . Waxa laysla arkay, inaan wax kaloo inasoo dabaali karaaba jirin. Waxa kaloo lays waydiiyey wixii aynu ka dagaalanay muxuu ahaa? Waxay noqotay oo saldhig u noqotay cadaalad darro. Halkaa waxa kasoo baxay baahideena koobaad inay tahay cadaalad darro. Cadaaladu halkay ku jirtaaba markaa lays waydiiyey? Caddaaladu waxay noqotay diinta islaamka. waxa ina wadda dhibtay oo aynu ogsoo-nahay bahal la yidhaa qabyaalad, oo eex iyo imtixaan dabada kuwadata, taana waxa laysla gartay, waxa aynu kaga bixi karnaa inay tahay inagoo ku dhaqana shareecada Islaamka, ee Ilaahay inoogu talo-galay Kownkan markuu ina dhigay isagu, ee uu inagu abuuray, inaynu ku dhaqano, masaalaxeena oo cid ka taqaanaa Ilaahay jirin, oo uu ugu talo galay inaynu taas qaadano ayaa iyadana laysla gartay.

Halkaa waxa soo galaaya, qodob kii hore la xidhiidha, oo waxaynu nidhaahnaa hadaynu gaar isku taagno layna ictiraafi maayo, oo ictiraafka cida laga doonayaa waa Binu Aadam, xagee dabadeetana ictiraafka laga helayaabaa la yidhi markaa. Anagu waxaanu isla garanay oo aanu mudnaanta siinay, cidaynu raali-galinaynaa inay noqoto Ilaahay, Ilaahaybaa quluubta Binu Aadamka xukuma, isaga ayaa cid walba inoo soo khasbi-doona oo inoo fudaydin doona, hadii aynu dariiqiisa raacno oo ku toosnaano, waxaanu ku kalsoon nahay in aynaan wax dhibaato ah la kulmaynin, markaa aan sidaa aamino, aan ku kalsoonaano, aynu u wada diyaar-garowno inaynu fulino, hubaalna waxa ah hadii aynu sidaa ku toosnaano oo cagta saarno, wadadaa ilaahay, in aan wax socdaa oo inaga hor imanayaa jirin, markaa nin walowba dhinacaaga ugu diyaar garaw.

The complete speech of the President of the Republic of Somaliland H.E Muse Bihi Abdi at American Heritage Foundation.

The complete speech of the President of the Republic of Somaliland H.E Muse Bihi Abdi 

        I.            Introduction
 
 
Good afternoon,  I would like to extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Kevin Roberts, President of the Heritage Foundation, for inviting me to give this address today. 
 
The Heritage Foundation stands out among America's leading public policy institutions for promoting a truly interdisciplinary approach to understanding the politics and economics of East Africa. It is therefore a great pleasure and an honor for me to exchange views today on Somaliland and the future of our region with such distinguished participants.
 
Ladies and Gentlemen
 
Today the whole world is laser focused on the tragedy in Ukraine. The shelling, the bombardment, the destruction, the death, the mass suffering and the largest refugee crisis in Europe.  Today, the suffering of the people of Ukraine  is unfolding in front of our own eyes with the help of  24/7 news cycle and the social media. For us this tragedy is reminiscent of the genocide committed against our peope  33 years ago. A tragedy I myself witnessed first hand and which over 50,000 of our people were massacred at the hands of Somalia government and more than a million of our people became either refugees or were internally displaced.  We feel the pain and the anguish that the people of Ukraine feel today because we went through the same experience. Only in our case the genocide committed against our people was hidden from the world as at that time there were no 24/7 news cycle or the social media. However the bitter memory of what we went through is forever memorliazed in our minds and will never be forgetten.
 
Ladies and gentlemen: I come before you today to talk about my country's progress, challenges and the role my country  plays in the security, stability and economic development in our region and beyond. 
 
 
     II.            Somaliland's journey toward independence
 
Somaliland first gained independence and international recognition on 26 June 1960. Five days after independence, Somaliland united volunatarily with Somalia with the aim of creating a "Greater Somalia" comprised of five former colonies inhabited by citizens of ethnic Somali origin ( British Somaliland, Italian Somaliland, French Somaliland, the current Somali Region of Ethiopia and the then Northern Frontier District of Kenya). Unfortunately this union, which was never legally formalized,  became more bane than boon. The dream of a greater Somalia not only did not materialize but caused untold suffering and devastation for the Somali ethnic group and the broader Horn of Africa region. 
 
The hastily arranged union became untenable for Somaliland as our people were subjected to increasing autocratic rule and oppression from Mogadishu. Initally the civilian government of Somali Republic through administrative takeover reduced Somaliland to the status of junior partner in the union. This power grab and deliberate domination did  not go down well with our people and they start to resist Somalia's design of domination. 
 
Early dissatisfaction with the union led the majority of Somaliland voters to reject the unitary constitution in a June 1961 referendum, and in December of that year Somaliland officers launched an unsuccessful coup in Hargeisa, with the aim of restoring Somaliland's independence.
 
The military regime that seized power in October, 1969 continued systematic discrimination against the people of Somaliland. The formation of the Somali National Movement (SNM) in 1981 was a manifestation of the discontent of the people of Somaliland. Any attempt by the people of Somaliland to seek their lawful rights was met with extreme brutality, extra-judicial executions, disappearances, arbitrary arrests, detention, and torture.  
 
in May 1988, the SNM launched successful assaults gainst Hargeisa and Burao.  The conflict erupted into full-scale civil war. The military regime answered with indiscriminate bombardment and deliberate targeting of civilian population. Hargeisa, the Somaliland capital was razed to the ground. Other cities were also systemically targeted and destroyed.  The regime's genocidal actions were in effect an act of ethnic cleansing. Evidence of widespread war crimes committed against the people of Somaliland has been fully documented by the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Human Rights and a forensic team from Physicians for Human Rights, as well as the Somaliland War Crimes Commission.  
 
After the collapse of the Somali state in 1991, the people of Somaliland decided to withdraw from the union and re-assert Somaliland's sovereignty and independence – in full compliance with international law and the charter of the African Union.  To fully understand the Somaliland people's desire for independence, all we need is to look at the tragic history of oppression, human rights violation, and genocide experienced by the people of Somaliland at the hands of Somalia government. 
 
In the three decades that followed, the people of Somaliland built a functioning state, a successful market economy and a vibrant democracy. 
 
Inclusive and transparent elections, have been a critical element in the consolidation of the Somaliland state and its validation by our people. 
 
These elections, which in recent years have been among the first to use advanced iris biometric verification technology, are widely endorsed by international observers as free and fair and have led to repeated peaceful and orderly transfers of power. These include Somaliland's combined parliamentary  and local councils elections last May, held in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to continuing this tradition with more elections later this year.
 
My country, Somaliland, is often celebrated for our functioning, stable and democratic state in an otherwise volatile region. We do not wish to be extraordinary. But similarly sustained democratic progress in our part of the world is rare. 
 
We have deterred terrorists from our land and pirates from our coastal waters.
 
Somaliland is rightfully very proud of the security, stability, and democracy we enjoy, and I am pleased to say we celebrated 30 years of independence in May of last year.  Somaliland has now been outside the union with Somalia more than we have been inside the union.
 
We are confident that, in time, the world will come to acknowledge what an African Union fact-finding mission to Somaliland concluded in 2005 – that Somaliland's search for recognition is "historically unique and self-justified." And our ultimate goal remains: to gain international recognition as an independent nation and assume our rightful place within the international community. Yet while we maintain this aspiration, in the short-term the focus of our diplomacy is deeper engagement with those who share our values – especially the United States. This pragmatic and patient approach has helped Somaliland emerge in recent years as a reliable partner in a critical region.
 
   III.            Somaliland's geopolitical significance and shared interests with like-minded countries.
 
First, the security situation in Somalia has deteriorated dramatically, provoking a reevaluation of the political considerations that impeded more direct engagement between the U.S. and Somaliland.  
 
As you will recall, the U.S. reestablished diplomatic ties with Somalia in 2013, guided by a vision of an empowered central government in Mogadishu that could build domestic unity among disparate clans, degrade and defeat extermism and protect its people and its neighbors from the scourge of terrorism and instability. 
 
That vision was not realized. 
 
Today, even those most committed to empowering the Mogadishu government have lost faith in the project. Time and time again, Mogadishu's partners have expended financial resources, diplomatic resources and military resources, with little to show for the effort.  
 
Regrettably, after nearly a decade of good intentions by Mogadishu's partners and considerable U.S. and international assistance, the Somalia government lacks legitimacy and struggles to exercise its authority beyond Mogadishu. It remains a source of instability in our fragile region.  
 
The second major development is that the Horn of Africa has become a region of heightened strategic importance. In a difficult neighborhood, Somaliland's stability and reliability is increasingly recognized as an asset for advancing the interests of  countries who share the same values. 
 
In recent years, the stability of the Horn of Africa has also been challenged by conflicts in the region, as well as the constantly evolving operations of terrorist groups. Instability and food insecurity is further exacerbated by drought, desertification, locust swarms and climate change effects. 
 
Simultaneously, the Bab el-Mandeb Strait has emerged as a vital strategic link in maritime trade routes connecting the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea to the Indian Ocean. Significant portion of the world's oil passes through Bab el-Mandeb, as well as considerable trade between Europe and Asia. Its importance is reflected in the expansion of foreign military bases and buildup of naval forces in the Red Sea, as well as enhanced international cooperation to fight piracy and ensure maritime security. 
 
Great power competition in Africa will continue for the foreseeable future. In this environment, the United States should make clear its support for governments that embrace democratic governance and stability in the midst of threats, instability and external pressure.  
 
The Third major development is Somaliland's emergence as a trade and shipping hub.
 
The modernization of the Port of Berbera, the opening of a new international airport and construction of commercial corridors to inland neighbors are connecting the Horn of Africa to global trade routes, serving as a linchpin for renewed economic development in East Africa. 
 
Last June, our government and DP World inaugurated a new container terminal at the Berbera Port, marking the completion of the first phase of a significant port expansion project. This was followed in October with DP World and Britain's development finance agency announcing plans to jointly invest significant amount of money in logistics infrastructure in Africa, starting with the further modernization of Berbera Port. 
 
These investments, combined with ongoing challenges in neighboring countries, make Somaliland the most stable and reliable conduit between much of East Africa and the world's major shipping lanes.
 
Taken together, these three developments – the challenges the international community confronts in the Horn of Africa, its increasingly strategic importance, and Berbera's potential to create a new economic engine for the region – mean that Somaliland  is poised to became a key player in global security and economy. 
 
  IV.            Somaliland/Somalia Dialogue
The Somaliland/Somalia dialogue started with the London Conference of 23 February, 2012. Article 6 of the London conference stated that" "the conference recognized the need for the international community to support any dialogue that Somaliland and TFG (Transitional Federal government) or its replacement may agree to establish to clarify their future relations."  
 
The key point here is to clarify the future relations between the two countries. Therefore, in order to clarify the future relations between the two countries, the core issues of the dispute, namely the status of Somaliland, would have to be addressed and resolved.  
 
Despite nine rounds of talks between 2012 and 2022, the expected outcome of the talks, resolving the core issues of the dispute, the status of Somaliland, never materialized as there were no political breakthrough. The limited agreements made on the peripheral technical issues were never implemented as Somalia reneged on all of the agreements made.  During those ten years Somalia has demonstrated complete lack of interest in meaningful dialogue. In fact Somalia has used the dialogue to pursue policies aimed at weakening Somaliland's independence and its ability to develop including weaponizing international aid and economic development. 
 
Given that there has been no progress over the last ten years since the dialogue between Somaliland and Somalia started, Somaliland believes that the dialogue had failed to achieve its objective. The reasons for the failure lies entirely with Somalia's efforts to undermine the dialogue process as demonstrated by its harmful actions,  willful disregard of the agreements made and its intransigencies. 
 
Given that dialogue is not an option for Somalia as demonstrated by its conduct, bad faith and continuous sabotage of the dialogue, Somaliland believes that it is unfair to Somaliland to be beholden to a dialogue process that has failed to achieve its objective and has no hope of succeeding.  It is difficult to imagine that what has not been achieved in 10 years can be achieved in one or two years.
 
Somaliland therefore believes that there is no future in the continuation of dialogue with Somalia and is prepared to pursue all available avenues for international recognition.   
 
Given above, Somaliland believes that the international community has a moral obligation to support Somaliland's pursuit of international recognition.
 
     V.            The merits and promise of closer US-Somaliland collaboration
 
In fact, this chapter has already begun. From regional security to democracy promotion to economic development, the objectives and values sought by the United States align entirely with Somaliland's vision.
 
Recent months have seen an increase in engagement and collaboration, including productive visits by Somaliland Foreign Minister to Washington, and the recent visit to Hargeisa by a delegation of senior U.S. congressional staff – a historic first for Somaliland.   
 
I am very heartened by these developments. But sustained direct dialogue and partnership is needed if we are to effectively address the growing challenges and truly advance our shared security, economic and governance objectives in the region. 
 
An important foundational element of this partnership is the establishment of a permanent U.S. diplomatic presence in Hargeisa. Several nations – including Ethiopia, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Kenya, Taiwan, Turkey  and the UAE – have diplomatic offices in our capital, and the United States should join their ranks. With this presence and regular visits by senior U.S. officials, we will be able to cooperate more closely in a number of key areas.
 
Let me briefly highlight a few areas where Somaliland's capabilities and proven track record can be a valuable resource for the like-minded countries.
 
As I noted earlier, Somaliland has successfully deterred threats to our homeland and piracy in our territorial waters. Our Coast Guard works with partners such as the UK to guarantee the safety and security of maritime trade through the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, and we work with foreign partners and international NGOs to minimize illicit trafficking and smuggling networks. We have much to offer in terms of community-based security successes, and closer collaboration with the U.S. on these efforts would advance shared interests and strengthen its needed presence in the region.
 
Similarly, our recently modernized infrastructure, particularly the Port of Berbera, is well-positioned to support security operations, logistics and humanitarian aid, as well as expand commercial opportunities throughout the region. We appreciate the U.S. government's interest in Berbera and hope discussions will continue to explore utilization and further development of what could be a vital gateway for trade, investment and security collaboration. 
 
On governance issues, Somaliland's democratic government is the only one of its kind in the region. It serves as a beacon for our neighbors and others whose citizens seek opportunities to engage in the democratic process. Over the last 30 years, we have built our democratic norms and institutions and ensured more than  three  peaceful transitions of power. 
 
 
We are aware that there are still certain  issues to be addressed to ensure that our electoral process is more perfect.  We are working on ways and means, within our laws, of enhancing the role of women in our political process and increasing their participation, as candidates,  in future elections.
 
Somaliland has much to offer others seeking to build their own democratization processes. From updating voter registration systems to ensuring the objectivity of national election authorities, and from managing polling stations to facilitating the work of independent election monitors, we have 20 years of practical experience to share. We would welcome greater partnership with the U.S government and civil society organizations to advance democratic norms in our region and elsewhere – and to further improve our own institutions.  
 
 
  VI.            Conclusion
 
In a troubled region that has experienced significant setbacks for democratic governance and continues to face serious threats from terrorists and other violent extremist groups, the successes of Somaliland are no small achievement. Our friends in the United States understand this, and we are grateful for their continued engagement and support. 
 
Yet this is just the beginning. We can and must work more closely together if we hope to compete with – and overtake – those who seek further instability and dependency in our region.
 
There are so many practical and important steps we can take. And with each one, Somaliland will demonstrate to our partners and the world that our ultimate goal of international recognition should be granted.
 
As an equal with other nations, Somaliland will be able to contribute even more effectively to a sustainable and prosperous future for the Horn of Africa, building on our own experience in forging an oasis of stability in a long-troubled region.
 
The road ahead may be long, but I am more confident than ever that Somaliland will be able to count on U.S. support as we pursue shared objectives and journey toward our long-deferred destination: a free, sovereign, and democratic Somaliland. 
 
Thank you.

Aragtidii M. Siyad Barre iyo Doorashada Barlamanka Somaliland ee Muqdisho?


Aragtidii M. Siyad Barre iyo Doorashada Barlamanka Somaliland ee Muqdisho?

Adam Muse Jibril

Dib u Raac Dawyadii shalay, maxaa daal la Korodhsaday. Saaka taariikhdu 29/9/2021, waxaan Idaacada BBCda ka dhegeystey doorashada Barlamaanka Somaliland oo Muqdisho lagu qabanayo, iyo khudbad uu jeedinaayo Prof. Cabdi Ismaciil Samatar oo uu leeyahay "ii hiiliya aan idiin hiiliyee". Markaas baan xasuustay Xisbi magaciisu aha Hiil-qaran, oo Cabdi iyo Axmed Samater iyo rag kale sameeyeen, kaas oo markii dambe iska baaba'ay. Khudbadda Prof. Cabdi waxaan ka gartay in uu yahay nin baadi ka luntay oo raba in uu soo dhacsado, laakiin ay ka maqan tahay halka iyo cidda ay baadidaasi ku maqan tahay.

Baadida ka maqan dadka Somaliland waa xuquuqaha oo ay ugu wayn tahay tan siyaasadu, meesha ay ku maqantahay na waa Muqdisho. Waxaan kaloo xasuustay hadal la yidhi waxuu dhex maray Cabdilqaasim Salaad Hassan iyo Meles Zenawi; Cabdilqasim ayaa ku yidhi madaxdii shirka IGAD fadhiday: "Waxaan dacwad u qabaa Meles Zenawi, oo ah ninka dalkayga kala goynaya". Meles Zenawi waxuu ku yidhi "Mr. Qaasim, bal marka hore Muqdisho midee? markaa aniga iga dacwood". Haddaba, Xuquuqda dadka Somaliland soo dhacsadeen 1991 ma kula tahay in si sahal ah loo dhiibi doono mar dambe? Jawaabtu waa maya.

Midnimo caddaalad ku dhisan cidda waddaa ma kula tahay inay tahay  kuwa wada in Barlamaanka Somaliland Muqdisho laga soo doorto, Jawaabtu waa maya. Kuwa aaminsan hab-Dhaqankii iyo fekerkii 1960kii ee dedafeeyey Xuquuda Somaliland oon midnimo iyo qaranimo  Somaliyeed midnaba dan ka lahayn ee ayagu iska wada qaatay dhammaan dheeftii dawladii Somaliyeed, ma kula tahay inay maanta u danaynayan midnimo iyo qaranimo Somaliyeed, jawaabtu waa maya. Kuwii leh hab-dhaqankii Hargeysa iyo Burco burburiyey, ma kula tahay inay maanta Somalinimo iyo midnimo doonayaan, Jawaabtu waa mayaa. Kuwa leh hab-dhaqanka cunaqabataynta saaran shacabka Somaliland, ma kula tahay inay  khayr u soo sidaan Somaliland, jawaabtu waa maya. Kuwa leh hab-dhaqankii burburiyey midnimadii ummadda Somaliyeed haddana weli sii kala fogeynayaa, ma kula tahay inay wadaan midnimo caddaalad ku dhisan, Jawaabtu waa maya.

 

Haddaba  Noloshu waa koritaan iyo dhicitaan, dawladnimaduna waa sidaas oo kale, Qabiil iyo Qaran waa laba heer oo kala duwan, waana wax koritaanka bulshada la xidhiidha. Dawladnimadii 1960kii waxay ahayd mid dibedda laga keenay oo Gumaysigu samaystay. Dadka Somaliyeed waxaa ka dhexeeyey af-Somaaliga, diinta iyo dhaqanka, wax maamul ah oo ka dhexeeyey ma jirin. Markii ciidamadu qabsadeen  maamulkii dawladnimo 1969kii waxay dooneen in ay kor ka dhisaan dawlad Somaliyeed, taasoo noqotay mid keligi talis ah, waxaana laga dhaxlay oo maanta meesha dhibtu ka jirtaa ay tahay Sidee dib loogu dhisi karaa dawlad Somaliyeed: Ma dagaal iyo xoog, iyo in kor laga soo dhiso, mise in hoos iyo wada hadal iyo wax la isla oggol yahay (consensus based Solution arrangements) mise dawlado shisheeye, lacag shisheeye iyo ciidamo shisheeye . Jawaabtu waxay tahay; maanta sida keliya ee Dawlad Somaliyeed loogu dhisi karaa waa qaabka Somaliland u dhistay  dawladnimada oo ah: 1) Dibuheshiisiin lagu bilaabay shirar dhaqan-siyaasadeed oo hoos laga soo dhisay, iyo dhaqaalaha oo ka yimaada dalka  gudihiisa. 2) Abuurid qaab dawladnimo loo dhan yahay oo laga bilaabay hub ka dhisgis maleeshiyaadkii iyo dhisid ciidan qaran. Maanta waxa isdiiddani waa argtiyo ee maaha dad keliya oo isqabtay, waa aragtidii Somali-wayn ee Siyaad Barre iyo aragtida Somali Dimoqoraadi ah oo la yidhaahdo Somaliland.

Somaliland and the UK: Stability and Sustainable Development

(MENAFN - SomTribune)

On 11th November, DMA hosted their first engagement with the government of Somaliland since 2014, in partnership with Guul Group.

This marked DMA's 120th event, with over 200 registrants and four cabinet ministers. Opened by Stuart Brown, Head of the British Office in Hargeisa, and HE Abdi Hersi, Head of the Somaliland Mission in the UK, the event featured Lord Sheikh and the Minister for Investment Promotion, Hon. Mohamed Ahmed Mohamoud (Awad).
Drawing on his experience in Africa, and East Africa, Lord Sheikh discussed the strength of the relationship between the UK and Somaliland, the potential for Islamic Finance, sustainable investments and the development of Berbera Port as a catalyst for growth. The Minister of Investment Promotion echoed this, outlining key opportunities in agriculture, fisheries, energy, financial services and production, for the benefit of investors, the people of Somaliland and the environment.


McCoshan stepped in and steered an excellent content-rich first session for the event.

The panel explored Somaliland's trade and investment potential, as a vibrant and attractive market for FDI. Dr Saad Ali Shire, Minister of Finance, discussed Somaliland's growth rates and took a deep dive into the government's priority sectors, emphasising Somaliland's potential to be a gateway, not just into the country but into the wider region. Damon Bristow, FCDO, and Phillip Corper, SOGEEL, gave an insight into the work of the UK government and USAID in supporting businesses in this market. Hon. Hinda Jama Hersi Gaani, Minister of Employment and Family Affairs, highlighted the government's commitment to investors, employment laws and the quality of human capital in Somaliland.

As the biggest private sector investor in Somaliland, the Spotlight on Berbera Port showcased DP World's impressive $442m investment into the country and their future plans. Their long-term mindset is reflected in their focus on sustainability, local education and training.

GUUL Group announced their GUUL Grown investment platform, which is a one-stop-shop for anything trade and investment related in Somaliland, and their ambition to facilitate $100m into the country. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Guled, Chief Executive of Guul Group.

The second panel was expertly chaired by Lauren McEvatt, an Advisory Board member for DMA. A particular highlight was Dr. Edna Adan Ismail, who as a former Finance Minister, gave a passionate list of reasons why Somaliland should be the first choice for any business.

The Minister of Mining and Energy highlighted the potential in the energy sector, and the Minister of Finance spoke in more detail on the services provided by the Ministry to support investors. Angus Miller, emphasised the work of the FCDO in Somaliland and the importance of developing soft infrastructure, alongside hard infrastructure developments, such as the Berbera Port. Michel Botzung concluded the session with a brilliant presentation on why Somaliland is a jewel in the region and the importance of working together.

The Q & A session featured the Minister of Finance. There was only time to answer a selection of the audience's questions, covering Somalialnd's sovereignty, the blue economy, Islamic finance and the Berbera Port.

Many thanks to all of our speakers, supporters, our media partner the Somaliland Sun , and of course our sponsors: DP World , the Ambassador Hotel and Rio Architects .
