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.

Chair
Jonathan Brooks, UNDP PREP Director

Panellists
Luca Alinovi, FAO Regional Director
Shirwa Jama, IDLO Somalia Country Director
Hassan Noor, HanVard Africa, CEO
Davis and Shirtliff
