The Prime Minister thanked the UAE for their tireless support to Somalia over the last 22 years. Progress on last year’s agreement aimed at strengthening bilateral relations with emphasis placed on support and development of the political, security, economic and development sectors was discussed with a specific focus on speeding up that support and implementation. Somalia welcomes the UAE’s commitment to rebuild Somalia’s government institutions and infrastructure in order to create an environment that is open for business and attractive to investors from the UAE and the rest of the world.
The UAE also committed to support capacity building through the training of those serving in Somalia’s Judiciary system, government administration and diplomacy.
“My trip is aimed at strengthening the already close relationship between Somalia and the UAE. The UAE is a great friend and supporter of Somalia, taking an active part in rebuilding our government institutions and infrastructure and aiding social and youth development,” said the Prime Minister Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed.
