The Reasons to Invest in Somaliland

Why Invest In Somaliland?

  • Somaliland is a country with large economic potential and immense business opportunities for the development of new markets. Besides the fact that it is blessed with numerous natural resources, a fast expanding economy and a growing middle class, it is also well known for the exceptional hospitality of its inhabitants. Somaliland maintains a strong system of investment rights and a straight forward corporate law where investors will get adequate protection and benefit for their investments. However, Somaliland generates a resilient infrastructure for all investment although providing the strong growth and security needed.

    Doing business in a new market always presents numerous challenges. This is particularly the case in Somaliland as it is not a recognized country yet, and investors might think that doing business in such a place is going to be a difficult and daunting task. The main obstacle to major foreign direct investment has been the unfamiliarity on the part of potential investors about Somaliland’s well-established peace and stability as well as its economic potentials.
