Nairobi Forum: Is Somalia Ready for Foreign Investment? Jan. 17 2014 @ Serena Hotel
9am – 12pm ǀ Friday 17 January 2014 ǀ Amani Room ǀ The Serena Hotel
Private sector development is crucial to generating employment, stimulating livelihoods, and the provision of basic services in Somalia. Nevertheless, Somalia remains a challenging environment for most Somali and foreign investors.
An analysis of market potentials and business strategy, and an understanding of local business practice is necessary. This meeting, organised by HanVard Africa and the Nairobi Forum of the Rift Valley Institute, will examine the opportunities and challenges of private sector development in Somalia. It will discuss opportunities for national and international investors in manufacturing and in key sectors such as oil, gas, construction, agricultural production, livestock, fisheries and banking.
The speakers are drawn from the private sector, government, and the donor and diplomatic communities.
