Somaliland Private Sector Poised for Growth

Somaliland Investment and Economic Development

OEF's Shuraako program hosted the Somaliland Investment Forum in Hargeisa in late 2016, an event that brought together entrepreneurs, investors, policymakers, and other stakeholders to focus on strengthening private sector development and investment. The three-day event organized activities according to finance, strategy, and governance, incorporated Shuraako's findings from its 2016 report on Somali diaspora investment, and culminated in an opportunity for Somaliland entrepreneurs to pitch their businesses to investors. Also at the forum, Shuraako announced the Powering Progress Fund which seeks to create positive economic impact through investments in renewable energy technology.
