DP World bro till Afrika via Somaliland

Hamnar operatören växer närvaro med logistiknav

Berbera Port i Somaliland. Porten kommer att vara den åttonde DP world operationen i Afrika när klar.

BERBERA, SOMALILAND / / hamnar operatören DP World är hausse på Afrika och kommer att expandera ytterligare över hela kontinenten efter en del för att skapa en ny gateway i Somaliland, på dess östra kust.

“Jag är mycket hausse om Afrika och tror jag har fortfarande en mycket stor potential, säger DP World ordförande Sultan bin Sulayem till National under sin första resa till Somaliland förra veckan. “Anledningen till varför vi går till Afrika är därför vi får en hel del kunskap och erfarenhet och de är de två faktorerna för framgång.”Denna månad DP World tecknat en 442 miljoner USD med regeringen i Somaliland att utveckla och driva ett regionalt nav för handel och logistik på Port Berbera.

Projektet, som kommer att fasas in, innebär också inställningen upp en zon. Avtalet kommer som en del av ett större regering-till-regeringens samförståndsavtal mellan Dubai och regeringen i Republiken Somaliland att ytterligare stärka sina strategiska band.

Minister av utländska angelägenheter och internationellt samarbete av Somaliland, Saad Ali Shire, sade att avtalet är planerad att avsluta av juli. “Detta avtal öppnar ett nytt kapitel att få utländska investeringar av Somaliland. Denna affär bör öka arbetstillfällen för ungdomar i landet,”sade ministern.

DP World verkar i Senegal, Egypten, Moçambique, Djibouti och Algeriet, med mer än 3 600 anställda.

Under de senaste tre till fem åren, har DP World spenderat över 1 miljard dollar i kapital utgifter och lagt till 2,275,000 tjugo fot motsvarande enheter (TEU) kapacitet terminaler i Afrika, att den totala årskapaciteten till 6.2 miljoner TEU, sägs det.

Berbera port skulle vara den åttonde DP world operationen i Afrika när klar.

Enligt herr bin Sulayem blir Berbera hamn en hub och havet väg för den etiopiska marknaden främst, som är en av världens snabbast växande ekonomier och är i behov av förbättrad infrastruktur och faciliteter för att hålla med graden av expansion.

“Jag begärt ett möte förra året med statsministern i Etiopien eftersom de hade gjort ett tillkännagivande för stora expansionsplaner,” sade herr bin Sulayem. “När jag träffade honom han förklarade för mig att de är en stor befolkning, de är underutvecklade och de har börjat ett utveckling för att förbättra livet för sitt folk.”Investeringar i denna naturliga Djuphavsräka port kommer att locka fler rederier till östliga Afrika och dess modernisering kommer att fungera som en katalysator för tillväxt av landet och regionens ekonomi, herr bin Sulayem sade.

Han sade att trappa upp verksamhet i Berbera port kommer inte bara komplettera DP World services i Doraleh terminal i Djibouti – en viktig anläggning för regional handel – men också stödja tillväxt på sitt flaggskepp Jebel Ali port i Dubai.

Förra året Etiopiens ekonomisk tillväxt med 10.2 procent, men är nu satt till sakta till en ränta av 4.5 procent i år på grund av effekterna av torkan. Etiopiens ekonomiska tillväxt under de kommande fyra till fem åren emellertid gynnsam, med expansion i genomsnitt över 7 procent, enligt IMF prognoser. “Tillväxt i Etiopien har varit underbyggd av investeringar i infrastruktur,” berättade Natznet Tesfay, direktör för Afrika analys på London-baserade IHS National. Enligt Bashe Omar, chef för Somalilands handelskontor i Dubai, planerade investeringen i två faser. Först innebär $230m, med $62m för utvecklingen av den gamla Berbera hamnen, förnya och förstärka sin infrastruktur och $170m för utvecklingen av en ny containerterminal.

“När porten fungerar på en 75 procent effektivitet, de resterande $170m kommer att investeras i utvecklingen av kajen port,” sade herr Omar.

Investeringsavtalet innehåller placeringen av portalkranar, bogserbåt båtar och högteknologiska behållare lagring maskiner.

Porten fungerat historiskt som en sjö och missil bas för somaliska regeringen, och på 1970-talet utvecklades och förvaltas av Sovjet före att vara vände över på 1980-talet för amerikanska militära använda.

Porten har varit en viktig länk för Somalia och Afrikas Horn till världen, enligt Berbera port general manager Ali Mohammed Omar.

“1992 fanns en hungersnöd i Somalia när Berbera porten stängdes på grund av kriget. Det är därför den svält och hungersnöd var mycket stark och dödade många människor. Det är en viktig port för oss,”sade han.

En järnvägslinje mellan Djibouti och Eritrea lanserades i slutet av 2015, inrättande av en viktig transport infrastruktur linje och bättre tillgång. Regeringen-till-regeringens avtalet omfattar bygga en väg mellan Berbera hamn och staden Wachaale, på den etiopiska gränsen, avsedda för att transportera transporter direkt från Berbera till den etiopiska marknaden, herr Bashe Omar sade.

DP World kommer att vara inblandade i port och frizon projekt, hanterar organ inom UAE regeringen vägkonstruktion, herr bin Sulayem förklarade.

“Vi kommer att söka deras hjälp eftersom Somaliland är berättigade till utländskt bistånd från Förenade Arabemiraten,” sade han.

“Idag finns det 500 lastbilar avgår varje dag från hamnen på vägen. Om man tar ett genomsnitt av 400 lastbilar om dagen i ett år som är 146000 lastbilar lämna hamnen och om du lägger till lastbilar kommer in till hamnen, som är nästan 300.000 går in och ut så definitivt vägen kommer att lägga till ett stort värde,”tillade han.

Den etiopiska regeringen utvecklar nu Diridhaba, en ny logistik och industriellt nav i den nordöstra kvadranten av landet.

Detta kan representera en ny möjlighet för DP World, säger herr bin Sulayem.

“Diridhaba är stor och regeringen har planer, vi hoppas att vi kommer att tilldelas ett utrymme för vår logistik park ett industriområde där.”

Dubai’s DP World Agrees to Manage Port in Somaliland for 30 Years (The Wall Street Journal)

 

Dubai’s DP World Agrees to Manage Port in Somaliland for 30 Years

The global ports operator gains alternative hub to Djibouti in the Horn of Africa

A cargo ship was loaded at the Port of Berbera in Somaliland in December.

DP World of Dubai has agreed to manage the Somaliland Port of Berbera in a landmark deal this month that opens a new point of access to the Red Sea and gives the global ports operator an alternative hub to Djibouti in the Horn of Africa.

Under the terms of the concession agreement, according to a person who has seen the document, Somaliland will grant the Dubai-based company the right to manage the Red Sea Port of Berbera for 30 years.

DP World said Sunday that it agreed to the port-management deal earlier this month in Dubai. Under the term sheet—a nonbinding agreement that serves as a precursor to a more formal deal—the company is to set up a joint venture to manage and invest in the port. DP World put a $442 million value on the project, but said it would be a phased investment and depended on port volumes.

The term sheet—which calls for DP World to pay $5 million a year plus 10% on port revenue to Somaliland—is a breakthrough in developing access to the sea for landlocked Ethiopia, the region’s largest economy, which until now solely relies on the Port of Djibouti for its exports.

DP World will control 65% of the joint venture and five of seven board seats, with the rest going to Somaliland according to the term sheet, the person said.

A spokesman for the Somaliland government didn’t reply to a request for comment.

It is the biggest single investment agreement in breakaway Somaliland—and treats the northern Somali region as a de facto independent nation, a position Somalia rejects. The U.N. doesn’t acknowledge Somaliland as independent, and it isn’t recognized by any other country in the world.

Other investment agreements in Somaliland have included fisheries and offshore oil-exploration licenses, but they have mostly been acquired for small sums or on the promise of job creation and development.

A free-trade zone was also planned to support the development of trade through Berbera, DP World said.

Sultan Bin Sulayem, DP World’s chairman and chief executive, portrayed the port as a future magnet for shipping to East Africa that would spur regional economic growth.

“Investment in this natural deep-water port will attract more shipping lines to East Africa and its modernization will act as a catalyst for the growth of the country and the region’s economy,” he said.

The deal, the company said, was also part of a broader strengthening of ties between Dubai and the Somaliland government.

Dubai and Somaliland also signed a memorandum of understanding, according to the person who has seen the concession agreement, under which Dubai will support Somaliland’s fisheries industry; help build the road between Somaliland and Ethiopia; build a four-star hotel in either Hargeisa, the capital of Somaliland, or Berbera; and grant Somalilanders favorable migration terms so they can work in Dubai.

The ambitions of Dubai, which is a part of the United Arab Emirates, in the Horn of Africa have run into trouble over the past year. The country left an air base it was leasing in Djibouti after a dispute with the government there—opting to lease another base in Assab in neighboring Eritrea, a remote state under U.N. sanctions for supporting armed groups in neighboring Somalia.

“Geopolitically, the contract appears to be a result of the recent cooling of relations between the U.A.E. and Djibouti, as well as sensitivity to Ethiopian concerns about recent engagement in the Eritrean port of Assab,” said Matt Bryden, executive chairman of Sahan, a Nairobi-based think tank.

“Berbera represents a pragmatic compromise, providing a friendly corridor for Ethiopian markets while signaling that Djibouti—though by far the most developed gateway to the Horn of Africa—will no longer enjoy a de facto monopoly over trade with the region’s landlocked markets,” Mr. Bryden added.

Another driver for the Berbera deal might be a long-running dispute surrounding DP World’s port in Djibouti, the largest container terminal in Africa.

The Djibouti government accused DP World in 2014 of paying bribes to the former head of its ports authority, Abdourahman Boreh, to secure a concession to operate the Doraleh Container Terminal in 2000. Djibouti revoked DP World’s 20-year concession and launched an arbitration case in London.

DP World has denied the allegations, and a U.K. court found in March that Mr. Boreh didn’t take bribes. DP World has continued to manage the port as the legal proceedings continue.

Having an alternative port under development nearby could put DP World in a stronger position in Djibouti, said Sanyalak Manibhandu, an analyst at NBAD Securities in Abu Dhabi. “It’s a leverage that they hold over Djibouti as well,” he said.

DP World eyes further Africa expansion following Somaliland deal (ArabianBusiness)

 

 

DP World eyes further Africa expansion following Somaliland deal

The chairman of DP World is “bullish” about growth plans in Africa, it was reported last week, after the ports operator signed a deal to develop and operate a trade and logistics hub in Somaliland.

DP World last week signed a $442 million agreement with the government of Somaliland to operate part of the Port of Berbera on the eastern coast of Africa.

The two parties agreed to form a joint venture company that will “invest and manage” and transform the port into a “regional and logistic hub,” DP World said in a statement.

DP World chairman Sultan bin Sulayem was quoted as telling The National in Somaliland: “I am very bullish about Africa and believe it still has a very huge potential.

“The reason why we go to Africa is because we get a lot of knowledge and experience and they are the two factors for success.”

DP World already operates in Egypt, Djibouti, Algeria, Senegal and Mozambique. In its statement, the company said it had added 2,275,000 twenty foot equivalent units (TEU) of capacity at its terminals in Africa over the past three to five years, bringing the total annual capacity to 6.2 million TEU.

The Somaliland project involves the setting up of a free zone and is part of a larger memorandum of understanding between the Dubai and Republic of Somaliland governments to strengthen strategic ties.

The Port of Berbera is intended to become a hub and sea route for the Ethiopian market mainly, one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. Investment in the port will attract more shipping lines to east Africa, and also complement DP World’s services in Djibouti, according to Bin Sulayem.

The National quoted Saad Ali Shire, Somaliland’s minister of foreign affairs and international cooperation, as saying: “This agreement is opening a new chapter to gaining foreign investment by Somaliland. This deal should enhance job opportunities to youth of the country.”

Somaliland project opens up Africa for DP World The National

Somaliland project opens up Africa for DP World

BERBERA, SOMALILAND // The ports operator DP World is bullish on Africa and will expand further across the continent following a deal to create a new gateway in Somaliland, on its eastern coast.

“I am very bullish about Africa and I believe it still has a very huge potential,” the DP World chairman Sultan bin Sulayem told The National during his first trip to Somaliland last week.

“The reason why we go to Africa is because we get a lot of knowledge and experience and they are the two factors for success.”

  Somalilands president, Ahmed Mohamed Siilnayo welcomes  the CEO of DP World at president palace, At the capital of Somaliland, Hargeysa.

This month DP World signed a US$442 million agreement with the government of Somaliland to develop and operate a regional trade and logistics hub at the Port of Berbera.

The project, which will be phased in, will also involve the setting up of a free zone.

The agreement comes as part of a larger government-to-government memorandum of understanding between the Dubai and the government of the Republic of Somaliland to further strengthen their strategic ties.

The minister of foreign affairs and international cooperation of Somaliland Saad Ali Shire, said that the agreement is scheduled to finalise by July.

“This agreement is opening a new chapter to gaining foreign investment by Somaliland. This deal should enhance job opportunities to youth of the country,” said the minister.

DP World operates in Senegal, Egypt, Mozambique, Djibouti and Algeria, employing more than 3,600 people.

In the past three to five years, the company said, DP World has spent over $1 billion in capex and added 2,275,000 twenty foot equivalent units (TEU) of capacity at its terminals in Africa, bringing the total annual capacity to 6.2 million TEU.

Berbera port would be the eighth DP world operation in Africa when completed.

According to Mr bin Sulayem, Berbera port will become a hub and sea route for the Ethiopian market primarily, which is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and is in need of improved infrastructure and facilities to keep up with the rate of expansion.

“I requested a meeting last year with the prime minister of Ethiopia because they had made an announcement for big expansion plans,” Mr bin Sulayem said. “When I met him he explained to me that they are a large population, they are underdeveloped and they have started a development programme to improve the lives of their people.”

Investment in this natural deepwater port will attract more shipping lines to east Africa and its modernisation will act as a catalyst for the growth of the country and the region’s economy, Mr bin Sulayem said.

He said that scaling up operations in Berbera port will not only complement DP World’s services in the Doraleh terminal in Djibouti – a key facility for regional trade – but also support growth at its flagship Jebel Ali port in Dubai.

Last year, Ethiopia’s economy expanded by 10.2 per cent, but is now set to slow to a rate of 4.5 per cent this year because of the impact of drought. However, the outlook for Ethiopia’s economic growth for the next four to five years is favourable, with expansion averaging above 7 per cent, according to IMF forecasts. “Growth in Ethiopia has been underpinned by investment in infrastructure,” Natznet Tesfay, the director of Africa Analysis at London-based IHS told The National.

According to Bashe Omar, head of the Somaliland trade office in Dubai, the investment is planned in two phases. The first will involve $230m, with $62m for the development of the old Berbera port, renewing and reinforcing its infrastructure and $170m for the development of a new container terminal.

“Once the port is working at a 75 per cent efficiency, the remaining $170m will be invested in to the development of the port quay,” Mr Omar said.

The investment agreement includes the placement of gantry cranes, tug boats and high-tech container storage machinery.

the World Cup for unrecognised states Somaliland is one of them

SLnnews-County of Nice will not defend title but Kurdistan, Székely Land and Chagos Islands among 12 non-Fifa members taking part.

Somaliland National Football Team

For most football fans, the big event this weekend is the Champions League final. But in Sukhumi, capital of the breakaway region of Abkhazia, attention will be on teams from 12 unrecognised countries – ranging from de facto independent states to autonomous regions with faint hopes of future autonomy – taking part in the World Cup for unrecognised states.

In the opening match on Sunday afternoon, Kurdistan will take on Székely Land, a Hungarian-speaking part of Romania. Other participants in the tournament include Somaliland and the Chagos Islands. None of the participants are UN members states.

The final lineup of the tournament has changed after a number of teams withdrew. The County of Nice declined to participate owing to “organisational restructuring”, the Isle of Man pulled out because the UK government advises against travel to Abkhazia, and the Aymara people from South America could not travel after promised funding from the Chilean government did not come through, according to tournament organisers.

The tournament is run by Conifa, which represents national sides unable to join Fifa, the world football body. The first tournament took place in 2014 in Östersund, Sweden, where the County of Nice beat the Isle of Man in the final and the Arameans beat South Ossetia in the third-place playoff.

Conifa’s general secretary, Sascha Düerkop, said the tournament gave unrecognised states a chance to play international football, and complained that Fifa’s regulations were often unfair or inconsistent.

“It is still absolutely not clear or transparent who can be a member of Fifa,” said Düerkop. Gibraltar and Kosovo were recently made members of Uefa and are thus eligible to play in international tournaments, despite not being UN member states.

“We absolutely applaud the decision that both were finally allowed into Fifa, as surely they are the only FAs that have de facto governmental power of the territories mentioned. But the same is true for the Abkhazian FA, the Nagorno-Karabakh FA, the Northern Cyprus FA, the Crimea FA and the South Ossetia FA.”

Meanwhile the Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey have more political independence from the UK than Gibraltar, according to Duerkop, but are not allowed to play international football.

Abkhazia, a subtropical chunk of coastline on the Black Sea that was once a popular Soviet holiday resort, is considered by most of the world to be part of Georgia, but has functioned as a de facto independent statelet since a war after the breakup of the Soviet Union.

In 2009 Russia recognised the territory as independent, and it now functions as a Russian protectorate. Other than Russia, only Venezuela, Nicaragua and the Pacific island of Nauru recognise Abkhazia’s independence.

A spokesperson for the Georgian government said no permission had been sought from Georgia to host the tournament, but added that by definition the Conifa tournament was for unrecognised states and thus “does not entail the legitimisation of the regime in control”.

He added that entering Abkhazia from Russia was a violation of Georgian territorial integrity, and as such any players who did so would be banned from Georgia in future, and a criminal case would be initiated against them.

Matches will be played at Sukhumi’s Dinamo stadium, which has a capacity of 4,300, and in the town of Gagra, a resort town where Joseph Stalin had a dacha. Organisers expect some of the matches to sell out, thanks to demand from locals, holidaying Russians and a small handful of fans who plan to make the trip to support their teams.

Wasiirku waxa uu sii dhex galay nuxurka heshiiska iyo faa’iidooyinkiisa, waxanu yidhi “Heshiiskani waxa uu dhiirigelinayaa dad badan oo danaynaya inay dalkan maalgaashadaan, marka dalka la maalgashadana shaqo ayaa ka abuurmaysa, taasina waxay inoo suurto gelinaysaa inaynu maarayno dhallinyaro badan oo kuweena ah oo shaqo la’aan haysato, taasoo ah mudnaanta dawladan. Wuxuu u gudbay faah-faahin uu ku sameeyey mashruucan waxanu yidhi, mashruuca wejigiisa hore waa laba qaybood. Qaybi waa dekeda iyo waxa laga qabanayo, waxana weeyi in la balaadhiyo, lana tayeeyo ee maaha uun waa la maamulayaa oo maamulka dekeda hore inagu waynu ku fillan nahay. Waxase weeye in dekeda la waynaynayo oo lagu darayo 400M mark hore, iyadoo mardanbena lagu dari doono 400M oo kale. Mar uu ka waramayey shaqaalaha dekeda iyo mustaqbalkoodu sida uu noqon doono, wasiirku waxa uu yidhi shaqaalaha ka shaqeeya dekedu sidooda ayey uga shaqaynayaan.

Arrintaa dhawr jeer ayaanu waydiinay waxanay sheegeen in shaqaalaha dekeda wax ku kordha mooyaane aanay waxba ka naaqusmayn. Markay arrintaa ka hadlayeena waxay yidhaahdeen in markii ay dekeda Jabuuti ka hawlgaleen shaqaalihii joogay wax ku kordhay mooyee aanay waxba ka naaqusmin.

Ugu danbayn wasiirku hadalkiisa waxa uu sheegay in heshiiskaasi yahay mid dhex maray laba dawladood oo ah Somaliland iyo Isu-tagga Imaaraadka Carabta. Waxaanu u soo jeediyey shacbiga Somaliland kuna dhiirigeliyey inay soo dhaweeyan mashruucan oo uu ku sifeeyey mid albaab dhaqaale iyo mid siyaasadeed u furaaya dalka, saaxiibo badana aynu ku kasbanayno sidaa awgeedna xilka ina saarani uu yahay soo dhawaynta iyo isbarbar taaga heshiisyada noocan oo kale ah.

Dhiniciisa waxa hadalkii la wareegay agaasimaha guud ee shirkada, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem oo ay ka muuqatay kalsooni iyo weji furnaan, waxanu hadalkiisa ku bilaabay “waxa ii farxad ah sharafna ii ah in aan idinla joogo Hargeysa. Waa socdaalkaygii ugu horeeyey, dareen I taabtay ayaan kala kulmay, manaan moodayn in dalkani intaa leeg yahay, waanan rumaysan kari waayey.”

Wuu sii watay hadalkiisa oo waxa uu yidhi “waxan booqday dekeda berbera iyadoo uu gadhwadeen noo yahay Eng Cali Xoor-xoor wanan ku farxay shaqada ka socotay iyo khibrada ay leeyihiin masuuliyiinta iyo hawlwadeenada dekeda ka shaqeeya, oo aan runtii u qirayo inay hayaan shaqo wacan”.

Socdaalkayagu waxa uu na geliyey kalsooni, waxa aanu ogaanay inay dekedani ay tahay tii ku haboonayd heshiiska taariikhiga ah ee aanu galnay, annagoo ka wakiila dawlada Isu-tagga Imaaraadka Carabta, heshiiskan oo ah mid ay wada galeen labada madaxweyne ee labada dal, markuu madaxweynuhu nagu soo booqday halkaas,.

Waxan labadayada dhinac ku heshiinay in aanu dekeda Berbera ka qaadno sida ay tahay, kana dhigno deked caalamiya oo casriya oo leh aagga ganacsiga xorta ah iyo qaybaha la dhigo qalabka dekedaha. Waa heshiis dhex maray laba dawladood, Imaaraadka iyo Somaliland iyo ummadahooda oo ay ku jiraan ganacsatada labada dhinac.

Wuxuu bogaadiyey agaasimuhu mawqica juquraafi ee dekeda berbera, waxanu yidhi “waxa aanu aaminay halka Illaahay dhigay dekeda berbera ee ay dunida kaga taalo inay tahay meel wacan.” Waxa kale oo aan ku faraxnay sida wanaagsan ee ay ugu xidhan tahay itoobiya oo ku haboon koboca dadka iyo dhaqaalaha Itoobiya oo ay tahay dekedii ku haboonayd inay u adeegto dadkaa tirada badan.

Wuxuu ka hadlay oo kale qaybta ganacsiga xorta ah ee dekeda waxanu yidhi “qaybta dekeda ee xorta ahi waxay noqon doontaa qayb ganacsatada caalamka soo jiidata”. Wuxuu u gudbay inuu ka waramo shirkada DP World iyo Awoodeeda, isagoo arrintaa ka hadlaayana waxa uu yidhi “waxan leenahay 30 sanadood oo khibrad dhinaca dekedaha ah. Waxan maamul ku leenahay dekedo gaadhaya 77 dekedood oo ku yaala 40 dal oo dunida ah gaar ahaan Afrika, kana mid yihiin Jabuuti, Masar, Algeria iyo Senegal iyo kuwo kale ”.

Intaa ka dib waxa su’aalo laga waydiiyey labadaa masuul heshiiska dekeda, su’aasha koowaad oo ahayd halka looga dhaqaaqayo inta imika heshiiska qabsoontay, waxana ka jawaabay wasiirka Arrimaha dibeda waxanu yidhi “waxa aanu hadda kala saxeexanay heshiis hordhac ah. Qaybta heshiiska ee balaadhana waxa ka shaqaynaya garyaqaano insha “Allaahuna” waxa aanu rajaynaynaa inay dhamaato bisha June ilaa July ee inagu soo fool leh”.

Su’aal labaad oo ku saabsanayd in uu door ku leeyahay ganacsadaha reer Jabuuti ee Cabdiraxmaan Boorre heshiiska, isagoo ka jawaabaya agaasimaha guud ee shirkada DP World, waxa uu yidhi “Sheekadan ku tidhi ku teenka ah hore ayaan u maqlay, sidaad adiguba u maqashay ee ku saabsan Boorre”.

Mr. Boorre wax shaqo ah kuma laha habayaraatee heshiiskan. Heshiiskani waxa uu dhacay muddo hore. Waxanu u taagan yahay kana turjumayaa heshiis dhex maray laba dawladood, isu-tagga Imaaraadka Carabta iyo Somaliland. Go’aanka in heshiiskan la galaana waxa lahaa labada madaxweyne ee labada dal.

Waa heshiis dhex maray laba dawladood. Waxa saamilay ka ah (Share holders) dawladda Somaliland iyo Imaarada Dubai. Cid kale waxba kuma leh, Boorrana hadalkiiba daa, wax dan ah oo uu ku leeyahayna ma jirto.

Weftigan balaadhan waxa dalka keenay oo hogaaminaayey Safiirka Somaliland ee Isu-tagga Imaaraadka Carabta Amb. Baashe Cawil Cumar, oo isagu intii la magacaabay xoojiyey xidhiidhka labada dal, waxana weftiga ku soo dhaweeyey magaalada Berbera, Wasiirada,Arrimaha dibeda, madaxtooyada, Maareeyaha Dekeda Berbera,iyo Maamulka heer gobol iyo heer degmo ee Gobolka Saaxil.

Somaliland: 25 years as an unrecognised state Somalilanders refuse to let the lack of recognition for their state stop them from celebrating its 25th anniversary. James Jeffrey | 23 May 2016 10:51 GMT | Politics, Africa Al Jazeera

 

http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/inpictures/2016/05/somaliland-25-years-unrecognised-state-160520112141208.html

Hargeisa, Somaliland – On May 18, 1991, Somaliland declared its independence from Somalia. Twenty-five years on, it still has not received legal recognition from the international community. 

“Even if they don’t recognise us, our independence is by virtue of our existence and by virtue of our liberty,” said Yussef Ali, who had taken his four young sons to join the crowds that lined Independence Avenue to watch the May 18 independence parade under the harsh sun.

Around 500,000 Somalilanders were expected to fill the streets of the capital, Hargeisa, for the big day. But despite the festivities and the resolve of its people, Somaliland is straining after a quarter of a century of non-statehood. Its economy is fragile, making this apparent against the odds success story vulnerable.

“It’s absolutely unfair,” said Saad Ali Shire, the minister of foreign affairs and international cooperation, after a conference the preceding day titled, The Republic of Somaliland: The Case for Recognition.

“We can’t get international credit or foreign investment to build the country and create jobs as we are not recognised.”

After the civil war at the end of the 1980s left much of Hargeisa in ruins and its population scattered – many in refugee camps in neighbouring Ethiopia – Somaliland rebuilt itself in “extraordinary isolation,” explained Matthew Bryden, a political analyst who has been involved in Somaliland since its formation.

Somaliland has demonstrated that rarest of things: self-generated post-conflict reconstruction resulting in peace, democracy and good governance without international intervention.

Since 2003, Somaliland has held a series of democratic elections resulting in orderly transfers of power, exhibiting a level of political maturity that has eluded many recognised states.

But as another anniversary passes, it seems Somaliland cannot rely on its 25-year track record to gain what it so sorely desires.

“Somaliland pursued recognition for 21 years in the absence of a Somali government and was unsuccessful. Now, there’s a recognised government in Mogadishu, [and] Somaliland’s challenge is even greater,” said Bryden.

“Whether they stay together or separate, their populations, economies, even security, are interdependent. They have no alternative to dialogue.”

DP World signs $442m joint venture with Somaliland

Joint venture entity will ‘invest and manage’ Port of Berbera, which it aims to transform into a ‘regional and logistic hub’

Published: 21:20 May 11, 2016 Gulf News

Dubai: DP World, the port operator with terminals from Brazil to China, has signed an agreement with the government of Somaliland to co-invest $442 million (Dh1.62 billion) in the Port of Berbera.

The two parties have signed a term-sheet agreement to form a joint venture company that will “invest and manage” and transform the port into a “regional and logistic hub,” according to DP World statement sent to Gulf News on Wednesday.

It is understood the agreement was signed during a recent visit to DP World’s offices in Dubai by Somaliland officials.

 

Somaliland’s President Ahmad Mohammad Mohamoud was reportedly in the UAE last week. Somaliland is an autonomous and impoverished region in the Horn of Africa.

The agreement is non binding but sets the basic terms for the investment that includes investing $442 million in the port “over time.”

The investment is dependent on the port’s performance, the statement said, and will also include the setting up of a free zone.

The development of the Port of Berbera “will provide an additional gateway for Ethiopia that is needed for its growth and serve other land-locked countries along the east coast of Africa,” DP World said.

In March 2015, Dubai-owned P&O Ports said it had entered into “preliminary discussions” with the government of Somaliland to develop ports in the region.

P&O Ports is a sister company of DP World but does not share the same ownership structure.

DP World is owned by Dubai investment company Dubai World while P&O Ports is owned by state entity Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation (PCFC).

Sultan Ahmad Bin Sulayem is the chairman of DP World and PCFC.

Somaliland is a breakaway region of Somalia that has functioned as an independent state for twenty years without international recognition.
