Hargeisa (SD) – Somaliland President Muse Bihi Abdi has today received at the Presidential Palace a delegation led by DP World Chairman and General Manager, Sultan Ahmed Bin Suleyman.
The DP World delegation arrived just days after a rival Qatari delegation visited Hargeisa.
The meeting between the President of Somaliland and the head of DP World focused on the development of the Berbera port.
“The meeting focused on accelerating the partnership between Somaliland and DP World, paving the way for the opening of the first phase of the Berbera Port, which has been completed and will be opened soon, and discussed how to move on to the second phase of the port expansion.” Said statement from Somaliland.
Adding “The meeting focused on business opportunities surrounding the use of the Berbera port, such as the Berbera Corridor trade route and its expansion, as there will be a large number of transport to neighboring Ethiopia and East and Central Africa.”
Dubai-based DP World has recently signed an agreement with the Ethiopian Ministry of Transport to build a road linking Ethiopia and Berbera in Somaliland.
DP World said in a statement that it plans to spend $ 1 billion over the next 10 years on infrastructure development.
