1. BRIEF SUMMARY:

1.1 MAYOR’S STATEMENT:

On behalf of all the members of the first elected Local Government


Councillors from Greater Hargeisa Municipality, all the employees of
Hargeisa Municipality and the respective constituencies of all different
residential areas, I, Eng. Hussein M. Jiciir, as the first elected Executive
Mayor/Chairman of Local Government Council would like to genuinely
express our gratitude and appreciation to all the different stakeholders that
either directly/indirectly supported (financial or in-kind and in particular for
technical assistance) the process of re-establishing all the institutional
apparatus of Hargeisa Municipality from the period 1991 to 2002.

An important example of this support can be seen by the efforts of the


executive management and administration to primarily undertake a complete
production of the First Hargeisa Statistical Abstract (published in 1999).
Support in terms of technical and financial assistance came from the United
Nations Development Office for Somalia (UNDOS), a project of the United
Nations Development Programme (UNDP Somalia).

Further support has been given in the form of on-going preliminary


planning for data and additional information collection with UNDP Somalia.
This has led to the production of this booklet: An updating of the First Hargeisa
Statistical Abstract (1999 to 2002). The compilation of this booklet was
assisted by the World Bank and the United Nations Development Programme
(UNDP), through the Somalia Watching Brief Project (SWB).

The forthcoming publication of the Hargeisa Statistical Abstract 2003


(second production) will contain the information, activities and references of
Hargeisa Municipality and the Local Management as well as the
Administration Governing System and its Organisational Structures. In
addition, included will be all the other data and information that was
collected between 1999 and the end of December 2002 e.g. completed
social, economical and infrastructure rehabilitation and new projects by
Hargeisa Municipal, Central Government Line Ministries, International
Development Organisations (EU, UN, INGOs) as well as private local
organisations namely Businesses and Civil Society Organisations - (LNGOs,

7
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

Technical assistance and support is provided to Hargeisa


Municipality in order to practically review and examine the existing capacity
of the Planning Department and Statistics Section. The staff of the Planning
Department and Statistics section who collected, compiled and analysed the
statistical data were once again sponsored by UNDP/SWB.

Therefore, I personally and on behalf of the local government


councillors, promise all of you, that following the publication of the second
edition of Hargeisa Statistical Abstract for 2003, a clear demarcation line will
be established which separates the previous administration’s
accomplishments and the starting point of our endeavours as the elected
representatives (to our respective constituencies from the Greater Hargeisa
Area). We will ensure our full time dedication, commitment, transparency
and accountability in terms of leadership, management and delivery of
reasonable public social and economic services needed by all the different
residential communities.

In practical terms, we (Councillors/Mayor) will be thoroughly re-


examining the existing practices of the local government executive
management systems that we have inherited from previous officials. We will
base our balanced reforms and revisions on a comprehensive technical study
to be commissioned soon by a team of local professionals and external
experts. We will review and examine all the existing and relevant common
issues that have been bad norms or practices with previous local government
management and within the administration in each department as well as the
local employees.

Finally, we extend our thanks to all the resident population from


Greater Hargeisa Municipality and all administration from the central
government (including all the subsequent national leaderships that made it
possible to assist in the long process). We thank them for re-establishing the
day-to-day-operations (despite meagre resources) such as policing (Peace and
Security), taxation, sanitation/hygiene services, public infrastructure
rehabilitation and urban water supplies of Hargeisa Municipality during the
difficult times that our nation and different institutions have passed through
until we were elected.

8
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

In summary, we officially appeal to all members of society - from


either the local community (as individuals, governments, private sector,
organisations) or from the international community to continue with their
respective support and assistance to the new elected representatives
governance needs and the executive management, administration and local
employees of Hargeisa Municipality. We face limited capacity and resources
compared to the immense challenges and opportunities that lay ahead and
your support will be essential. We need both your financial and technical
assistance in order to provide adequate public and economic services.

Your cooperation and collaboration with us will be highly


appreciated. I am confident as an elected, executive official representative
and on behalf of other fellow local council members to all the local
communities dwelling in the greater Hargeisa areas, that we will be
optimising all their tax contributions and other external assistance from the
international community by being completely transparent. We will have
established and accessible local programme records in order to accommodate
all and each of the respective institutional mandated requirements. (Please
refer to the attached contact addresses of the Executive Mayor and other
members of the Local Government Councillors for Greater Hargeisa
Municipality).

Best regards.

Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

1.1.1 PREAMBLE:

This is the second publication of the Hargeisa Statistical Abstract


(Year Book-2002) of Hargeisa Municipality, which was facilitated by the
technical assistance of UNDP Somalia in February 2003. The primary
objective of the Executive Mayor of Hargeisa Municipality is to document all
the completed achievements that occurred within the Greater Hargeisa Areas
in terms of local social, economical and infrastructure projects. It also takes
into account the incredible growth in terms of land size, population and other
socio-environmental factors in the same period.

It is clear, however, that all the changes that have been taking place
within the Greater Hargeisa Area have placed direct pressure on local
government services. Classic examples are the essential public service
utilities such as sanitation/hygiene, primary education, health, livelihood
(Income Generating Programmes - IGPs) and urban water distribution
supplies.

In order to provide an efficient administrative body to respond to


these pressures, the first Somaliland’s Local Elections for the local government
administrations took place among six local political parties after 34 years on
December 22, 2002 throughout the country - truly an historic event.

The elected local representatives (Executive Mayor and Councillors)


were entrusted to deal with all the existing local government administrative
and financial issues as well as the technical capacities in terms of Human
Resources and Organisational Structures.

Furthermore, the executive management’s leadership with the full


support of the elected 24 members will be a yard-stick measurement
anticipated by all the local resident population, central government, private
sectors and contributing funding organisations from the international
community.

As the Executive Mayor of Hargeisa Municipality, I am aware that it


may be too early to promise any tangible and specific results at this time.
However, I offer you my personal assurance that the first piece of legal work
to be promulgated by the Local Councillors as the Official Governing and

10
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

(Local Social and Economical Service Policy Document) will be officially


adopted by the end of June 2003.

This policy document will be clearly used as the Official Governing


and Management Directives/Guidelines by the local Executive Management,
Departmental Directors and local staff. In addition, it will be a prerequisite
that each sector/department and district administration will be required to
follow the Annual Programme and Budget Plans in order to develop a unified
local government. The initial development of such a document will be
prepared with technical assistance from the Comprehensive Reform and
Revisions Study Report Documents.

Hargeisa Municipality’s Technical Office will be established with the


mandate to provide regular technical assistance to all the district departments’
administrations of Hargeisa Municipality under the direct supervision and
authorities of the incumbent Executive Mayor. This will apply to all matters of
planning, formulating, designing, implementing, monitoring, evaluation and
reporting of local government Policies, by-laws, Programmes, Budget and
Internal Control/Auditing.

After practically examining the extent and impact of the reforms and
revisions required to put in place an adequate and cost-effective local
government institution, it was decided technical experts would be required to
initially provide this assistance. The mandate and the professional needs of
such a technical office will however be on a limited term as the long term aim
is for the respective departments and district administration of Hargeisa
Municipality to assume such roles and responsibilities.

In addition, the current Executive Administration of Hargeisa


Municipality have clearly shown firm commitment and dedication towards
their respective duties and responsibilities which entail initially collecting all
the primary data and information prior to the set-up of such a technical office.
This data collection will take place through direct interviews, brief evaluations
of each and every department and the relevant data and information
collection units of the five districts and other indirect or secondary sources of
data and information in order to spread across the board the limited Technical
Assistance from the UNDP-SWB Project.

11
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

For instance, the on-going research on the different aspects of the


Capacity Building Needs to Hargeisa Municipality Planning and Reintegration
Department’s, particularly the Statistics and Training Section, is the first and
foremost important step forward to the process of how to improve and
enhance cooperation between our two institutions.

The purpose of the on-going technical assistance from UNDP


specifically with the SWB project is to conduct a formal study regarding the
Statistics and Training Section’s internal capacity and the data and information
collection sources of the other departments of Hargeisa Municipality such as
the Revenue and Taxation Department. The aim is to further strengthen the
respective inter-departmental delivery capacity for locally mandated public
social services.

A practical step to achieving this overall objective is to build-up a


solid base of Local Statistical Records. The current survey activities in one of
the major local market’s petty traders’ daily tax collection pattern and records
have been formulated to become a starting point. As a result, UNDP-SWB
technical expert Ms. Mariam Alwi has designed and also facilitated
preliminary plans to be in the form of a Community Market Survey Pilot
Project. This will help to determine the extent of training and technical
assistance required for an integrated statistical unit and the appropriate in-
house training inputs each and every department and district administration
will require.

In summary, our future integrated reforms and revisions office for


Hargeisa Municipality will be the appropriate contact point for the facilitation
and coordination of all inter-departmental, district and rural administration
programmes. It will also be the focus point for organising all the activities
concerning overseas development and rehabilitation assistance from the
international funding organisations.

Please contact the Executive Mayor’s Office and the Senior Advisor of
the Executive Mayor (Mr. Ahmed Farah, with many thanks for his dedication
and contribution in the preparation of the booklet) for further information and
explanations related to all relevant issues or policy developments regarding
the newly elected Executive Management and Local Government Councillors

12
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

However, we welcome any comments, observations and suggestions


for improvement, which could be sent to the Director of the Planning
Department or the Senior Advisor of the Executive Mayor.

2. HARGEISA MUNICIPALITY GOVERNING POLICIES,


OBJECTIVES AND PROGRAMMES:

There are officially 25 newly elected Local Government Councillors


for the Greater Hargeisa Area for a five-year term starting from 22nd
December 2003 to 2007. Article No. Five (5) of Law No. 12 specifically
defined all the mandated constitutional authorities and the governing roles of
the entire Local Government Councillors’. The schedules and the type of
financial compensations are also stated. Prior to the official handover
ceremony, the newly elected councillors must collectively vote for two
positions contesting for the Executive Management Candidates among
themselves:

• Executive Mayor/Chairman of the Local Government Council


• Deputy Mayor/Deputy Chairman of the Local Government Council

2.1 LEGAL GOVERNING FUNCTIONS AND STRUCTURES:


The two elected members of the local government council will be
primarily performing the following mandated constitutional authorities, duties
and responsibilities as per Law No. 12 of the Decentralised Local and
Regional Government Authorities.

2.1.1. EXECUTIVE MAYOR/CHAIRMAN OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT


COUNCIL
Article Five (5) of Law No. 12 clearly stipulates all the mandated
constitutional Powers and Authorities as well as the Executive Management
Duties and Responsibilities of the elected Executive Mayor/Chairman of the
Local Government Council, the highest body and authority (See the attached
Terms of References - TORs).

2.1.2 DEPUTY MAYOR/DEPUTY CHAIRMAN OF THE LOCAL


GOVERNMENT COUNCIL
Similarly, the elected Deputy Executive Mayor/Deputy Chairman of
the Local Government Council for Greater Hargeisa Area will fully authorise
all the mandated constitutional Powers and Executive Management Duties
and Responsibilities of the elected Executive Mayor/Chairman of the Local
Government Council for all and any full or partial delegated powers,

14
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

authorities and managerial duties and responsibilities during his (Mayor)


official absence from duty.

2.1.3 CENTRAL GOVERNMENT (MINISTRY OF INTERIOR) NOMINATED


EXECUTIVE SECRETARY:
The third mandated official member of the Local Government
Council/Management officer is the non-elected Executive Secretary that is
also clearly stated by Law No. 12 to be the authorised central government
representative nominated by the Ministry of Interior for the execution of all
financial and administrative day-to-day-operations of Hargeisa Municipality
and the non-voting executive secretary of the Local Government Council.
However, his role, duties and responsibilities are primarily to the local
Executive Mayor/Chairman of Local Government Council.

2.2 ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTIONS AND STRUCTURES:

In the past decade there were several different local executive


management systems that had been introduced as Administrative Functions
and Structures for the local government authorities by the central government
administrations. However, few of these interim Presidential and Ministerial
Decrees were legislated in order to establish a suitable local government
system.

In 1995, the first systematic re-establishment processes of Hargeisa


Municipality Administrative Functions and Structures commenced with the
appointment, by the late President Egal, of Eng. Mohamed Hashi Elmi.

The strong administrative authorities dictated by the appointed


Executive Mayor had certainly attracted local dwelling communities and
several international organisations including the United Nations Centre for
Human Settlement known as UN-HABITAT. These groups came forward and
forged a tangible cooperation memorandum of understanding in order to
assist financially and technically with all the possible resources within and
from the donor communities.

The current elected Local Government Councillors for Greater


Hargeisa Area have thus had to inherit the complicated local administration
and its structures and deal with them in the best possible manner. It has also

15
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

had to introduce across the board a decisive reform and revision to all
department’s institutional and human resources capacity.

The Civil Service Commission of Somaliland conducted a


comprehensive review and evaluation study throughout the country in the
year 2001/02 by a presidential decree in order to re-examine the cost-
effectiveness and efficiency of all the administration functions and structures
of Somaliland’s 23 Local Government/District Authorities.

The highest Administrative Authority of Hargeisa Municipality is the


elected Executive Mayor/Chairman of the Local Government Council, his
Deputy and Executive Secretary and the official members of the Executive
Committee.

Prior to any possible future reforms and revisions of the current


administrative functions and structures of Hargeisa Municipality, there are
seven service departments, five district offices and several rural administrative
representatives within the legal territorial Greater Hargeisa Areas.

2.3 OVERALL OBJECTIVES AND GOALS:

One of the main objectives of the Executive Mayor and the Local
Government Councillor’s elected in the Greater Hargeisa Area for the five year
term (2002/07) is to review and revise present un-balanced local absorbing
capacities in terms of employees and management structures before the end
of this year. In particular, the extreme fluctuating and limited revenue
collection capacity needs to be restructured in order to provide adequate
integrated but cost-effective public, social, economic services and
infrastructure rehabilitation.

Therefore, in the next eight months (April to December 2003) our


administration has planned to undertake the task of providing an improved
public social services programme while critically, reviewing in depth the
overall present management and structures of Hargeisa Municipality.

The summary of the following priorities was identified by


administration. Although our time span is short, the entire elected Local
Government Councillors endorsed the issues as follows:

16
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

1. To establish a "Linking Strategy" between current and future


administrative systems;
2. To re-examine and evaluate all existing Local Government Management
and Structures;
3. To assess all the existing regular public, social, economic and
infrastructure services;
4. To develop the institutional capacity building needs of all the
departments/districts;
5. To enhance and improve human resources capabilities and skills in all
the different levels;
6. To develop an integrated public social development programme with
annual budget plans;
7. To develop a special Public Private Partnership (PPP) strategy programme
plans;
8. International Development Cooperation Programmes such as
sanitation/hygiene, electricity and water supplies systems;
9. To enhance the present Coordination and Collaboration Strategy with
central government;
10. To develop a Local Economic Development (LED) Programme and
"Strategy" with the Private Sector Investment into potential for the short
and long term period;
11. To establish in the future a cooperation strategy, "Federal Municipalities
of Somaliland."

In conclusion, in order to achieve the above stated plans, we must


ensure that our administration gets all the support and commitments of the
local taxpayers (financial contribution) as well as the confidence of the local
resident population dwelling in the Greater Hargeisa Areas.

In addition, we are also appealing to both regional and international


communities for their respective support in terms of Development Assistance
and Cross-Border Trade and Social Service Programmes between our nations.
The direct assistance to our Local Government Administration’s Governing
and Management Needs is efficiently spent on community development
projects such as rehabilitation of primary education, health,
sanitation/hygiene and water supply services and facilities that would be a
direct Livelihood Standard Improvements.

17
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

2.4 PUBLIC SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC SERVICE


MANDATES AND PROGRAMMES:
Since the first Greek Local Government Authority was established in
th
13 century, it has been standard that all public social services are organised
through a central authority that is mandated for legally administering a fixed
territorial jurisdiction and is accountable to a specific population called
Municipalities or Local Government Organisations.

Hargeisa Municipality mandated public social services are no


different from other sister local government institutions around the globe. The
following are the basic essential public services required from the current
municipal administration to the entire resident population in Greater Hargeisa
Municipality:

1. To provide a regular public sanitation/hygiene service;


2. To provide a regular public works and urban development service for
repairing and maintaining local public service facilities (health,
education, water, solid waste dumpsites, markets, roads, culverts,
bridges, open-water storm drainages, public street lights and local road
networks etc.);
3. To maintain internal security – policing services (Public Order Services);
4. To foster local economic development ventures such as (Direct
Investment Projects);
5. To provide regular provisions of public utilities such as urban water
supply, electricity and telecommunication;
6. To provide Municipality planning and develop local natural resources
such as land development and its land use systems (Residential,
Commercial, Industrial, Wild Life, Green-Houses, Public and Private
Recreation, and Commonly Used Public Facilities etc.);
7. To provide regular technical services to the private properties required
by the community;
8. To provide regular public administrative services such as local
identification authentication, and social contract documents (IDs,
Marriage/Death/Birth Certificates, Family Sheets etc.);
9. To provide regular business/commercial services such as business
permits, property deeds;
10. Any other public social, economic and infrastructure/environment
services delegated by the central government administration or
UN/International Organisations etc.

18
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

Despite the level of Greater Hargeisa Municipality growth in terms of


population and land there are a wide range of proportionate provisions of
public services regularly carried out by the local government administrations
of Greater Hargeisa Municipality.

However, the majority of the above stated essential public services


mandated as an integral part of Hargeisa Municipality are provided in a
limited manner due to the meagre technical and financial resources available.
The level of service provision is dependant on many internal and external
factors such as the political situation, security, weak public law enforcement
and judiciary services, livestock ban by Saudi Arabia and other Gulf
Countries, lack of national and international financial institutions etc.

3. GREATER HARGEISA MUNICIPALITY ADMINISTRATIVE


AND TERRITORIAL DIVISION (URBAN AND RURAL
COMMUNITIES):

3.1 CURRENT ADMINISTRATIVE DIVISIONS:


The compositions of Greater Hargeisa Municipality Administrative
and Territorial Divisions are as follows: -

3.1.1 URBAN ADMINISTRATIVE DIVISIONS:


The current settings of the Urban Administrative Divisions are in total
five major district administrations of which each one is further sub-divided
into four main sub-districts with three to four exclusive wards. In addition, an
appointed District Commissioner (DC), a Deputy Commissioner and an
Executive Office as the Administrative Secretary by the incumbent Executive
Committee of Hargeisa Municipality heads each Administrative District(s).

The following are the specific details of each Administrative District Division:

I. Ahmed Dhagax District Division:

• Mohamed Ali Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J


• 18th May Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J
• Farah Nur Sub-District with Four wards called B-T-J-X

19
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

II. Mohamoud Haybe District Division:

• Burco Durey Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J


• Sheikh Shukri Sub-District with Four wards called B-T-J-X
• Qudhac-Dheer Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J
• Jameeco Weyn Sub-District with Four wards called B-T-J
• Maxamed Mooge Sub-District with Two wards B-T

III. Ga’can Libaax District Division:

• Mohamoud Harbi Sub-District with Four wards called B-T-J-X


• Sheikh Madar Sub-District with Four wards called B-T-J-X
• Waraaba Salaan Sub-District with Four wards called B-T-J-X
• Sheekh Yusuf Sub-District with Three wards B-T-J
• Sheikh Nuur Sub-District with Two wards B-T
• Aw Adan Sub-District with Two wards B-T

IV. 26th June District Division:

• Gol-Jano Sub-District with Four wards called B-T-J-X


• Cayngal Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J
• Durya Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J-X
• Almis Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J

V. Ibrahim Koodbuur District Division:

• Guul-Alle Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J


• Jig Jiga-Yar Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J
• Xeero Awr Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J
• Lixle Sub-District with Three wards called B-T-J

3.1.2 RURAL ADMINISTRATIVE DIVISIONS:


There were no official "Beacon Points" during the Somaliland
Administration (starting from 1991), which clearly demarcated the exact
territorial jurisdictions of the four geographic directions of east, west, north
and south of Greater Hargeisa Municipality including its rural administration
divisions.

20
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

It was only recently in the year 2002, just before the official
announcement of "Local Government Elections" (on 22nd December 2002)
that the current independent "National Electoral Commission (NEC)" unveiled
the legal territorial jurisdictions for the Local Government Districts with the
official border of the colonial administration that existed before 1969 or
during the Somaliland British Protectorate Era.

Therefore, the current Rural Administrative Division can be classified


as a community collected under a village administration division. These may
be either agricultural and/or nomadic clusters with an appointed head of
villages and a number of community committees headed by the Executive
Mayor of Greater Hargeisa Municipality Administration.
The type of rural administrative divisions cannot be demarcated individually
but instead the furthest points of each geographic direction can be recalled
as follows:

1. East "Da'ar Buduq Village (60kms from Hargeisa Municipal towards


Berbera Port Town);
2. West "Nasa Abaarso Village (25kms from Hargeisa Municipal towards
Gabiley town);
3. North "Dara Salaam Village (80kms from Hargeisa Municipal towards Red
Sea);
4. South "Toon Village (18kms from Hargeisa Municipal towards the
Ethiopian Border).

3.1.3 FUTURE RESTRUCTURING OF ADMINISTRATIVE DIVISIONS


PLANS:
The current national constitution of Somaliland was recently rectified
(May 31st, 2001) by countrywide referendum. All the citizens have clearly
voted as of Article XXX that Hargeisa Municipality as the National Capital City
will exclusively have a separate City Charter. Thus, the governing and
management system for Hargeisa city will be entirely unique.

3.1.4 FUTURE CAPITAL CITY ADMINISTRATIVE DIVISIONS:


It is planned that a Reformed and Revised Master Plan of Greater
Hargeisa City will be composed. During the development of the technical
and legal components of this new City Charter, it is envisaged that there will
be many re-established norms and characteristics concerning how a

21
Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

International standards of modern city planning and urban


management, in particular how to establish common Zones (such as the
minimum resident population required for a public health or education
facility) have been studied. In applying this to Hargeisa city, it was decided
that it might be possible to re-shape current administrative divisions of Greater
Hargeisa City from the five existing districts into between 10 to 15
administrative districts.

In summary, the future Capital City Administrative Divisions will


depend on the strategy and land-use systems policies to be adopted by the
Local Government Councils.

4. PREVIOUS STATUS OF HARGEISA CITY (1991-1995):

The city of Hargeisa was largely destroyed by the civil war between
the Somali National Movement (SNM) and the ousted dictatorial regime of
Siyad Barre.

The returnees from 1991 to 1995 have attempted to rehabilitate their


family shelters with the help of extended family members abroad and a small
amount of petty trading income generating activities.

In addition, there was crisis intervention assistance from the UN and


International Organisations in areas of the public social service such as
educational, health care facilities and essential water sources.

Finally, the newly emerging Local Civil Society Organisations (CSO)


in Somaliland have also been a major factor in the process of facilitating all
the intermediate emergency and rehabilitation programmes that took place
during the same period.

However, the achievements and accomplishments of the local


resident population of Greater Hargeisa City have been incredible. One third
(1/3) of the destroyed properties have been rebuilt and all the major
community market places have re-commenced.

Hargeisa Municipality Statistical Abstract

4.1 SUMMARY DESCRIPTION OF HARGEISA CITY PROFILE (1995-2002):

Today, Hargeisa city’s profile could be viewed as ever expanding in


terms of physical structures and population. In early 1995, it was just the
beginning of the major spontaneous returnees of 1991 from the main refugee
camps in eastern Ethiopia.

Although Hargeisa city’s administrative profile started with the first


appointed executive official in 1991, the actual working administration took
place in 1995, right after the nomination of Eng. Mohamed Hashi Elmi, the
current Minister of Commerce and Industries, as the Executive Mayor of
Hargeisa Municipality. He was enormously dedicated and committed to re-
establishing all the norms and by-laws of the management and administration
for a lawless and war torn city.

Today, the post conflict (1994 to 1997) profile of Hargeisa City is


totally different. The last "National Conflict Reconciliation Conference" held
in the capital city Hargeisa has really encouraged everyone to be motivated
and to have greater confidence. Evidence of this can be seen in the booming
construction sector activities (that started mainly from the Diaspora
communities abroad) and other commercial and residential buildings as well
as the incredible public social service facilities that have emerged e.g. the
private hotels, (Ambassador, Maansoor etc.), Edna Children and Maternity
Hospital and the establishment of Hargeisa University. These are but a few of
the many other encouraging signs that have created an environment
conducive to investment.
