somalia economy

MOGADISHU, August 1, 2017– Somalia’s economy is projected to grow at a steady, nominal annual rate of 5% to 7% over the medium-term, according to the second Somalia Economic Update to be published by the World Bank Group. “Mobilizing Domestic Revenue to Rebuild” assesses the prospects for domestic revenue mobilization to support crucial public services and expand economic opportunity. “Sustainable and reliable domestic revenue is critical for Somalia’s delivery of the National Development Plan,” says Hugh Riddell, World Bank Country Representative for Somalia. “The new government is already working to establish legal and technical capacities for revenue generation.

To support sustainable development spending and reduce Somalia’s reliance on external funding, “the government and the business community need to work together to find ways to increase domestic revenue without undermining a vibrant private sector, which has been an engine for Somalia’s development over the past two and half decades.

The report shows that Somalia’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth continues to be urban-based, consumption-driven, and fueled by remittances and donor support. Over 70% of GDP is generated in urban areas. Nominal GDP is estimated to have grown by 5% in 2015 and by 6% in 2016, but data constraints make it difficult to comprehensively assess the macroeconomic situation, especially the rural sector and non-marketed output, such as water, fodder, and food grown for household consumption. Read More.

Trade and investment are the key drivers of development in Somalia that will ensure Somalia plays the fullest role in a changing and interdependent world. In support of this goal, Somalia has adopted one of the most flexible foreign investment laws in the world. This Investment law, most importantly, treats both foreign and national investors as enjoying similar economic and social advantages. More and more investors are showing interest in investing in Somalia and others have already begun the process of transforming lives and making handsome profits. Somalia offers unrivaled opportunities for investment in marine resources, transport, livestock, agriculture, and tourism and infrastructure development under Public Private Partnership schemes. This is coupled with one of the youngest and most dynamic populations and a Government ready to support investors in any way possible to develop the nation.

Somalia’s Investment Promotion policy is to advance the nations development, progress and prosperity. Somalia’s Economic diplomacy utilizes all our international assets to advance Somalia and the world’s prosperity.

Our national economic diplomatic agenda encompasses promoting trade, encouraging growth, attracting investment and supporting both national and Foreign Investors to flourish in diverse product and service markets across Somalia.

Somalia’s economy is growing and is built on a strong trading relationship with the world as well as favorable liberal investment policies which welcome all investors contributing to our dynamic private sector. The Somali Government is committed to improving the economic and investment environments so as to ease the process of investing in Somalia and facilitating further trade and prosperity.
