Trade Advocacy Fund

TAF support for capacity development in Somaliland

July 26th, 2016 by

TAF has been supporting Somaliland to enhance the trade, transit and negotiating competencies of key government agencies and develop the knowledge base to develop informed trade negotiating positions to address some of the country’s pressing challenges including the trade deficit with Ethiopia. During July 2016, The TAF funding supported a training workshop entitled “International Conventions and Best Practices on Border crossing”. The training took place over three days  between 19-21 July 2016 in Hargeisa. The workshop was attended by Somaliland representatives of the Ministry of Trade & Investment, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Public Works and Transport, Ministry of Planning, Customs and Immigration in addition to private sector representatives. Participants appreciated the format and content of the training workshop. One participant wrote to the trainer: “Thanks for enhancing my expertise in field of transport and transit , I’ll try to incorporate all these information as much as I can”. Participants highlighted the importance for Somaliland to be prepared for the next bilateral negotiations with Ethiopia scheduled to take place in September and stressed the need for Somaliland to assess the current capacities of the corridor, prepare a draft border management agreement and a bilateral road transport agreement to safeguard the quota for Somaliland transport operators.

In addition to the training, the TAF Service Provider also held consultations in July with Somaliland’s members of the Joint Operational Committee (JOC)– the institutional body that monitors implementation of the recently concluded Bilateral Agreement for the Utilization of the Port of Berbera with Ethiopia and conducts negotiations on unresolved issues. The consultations with the JOC focused on preparing Somaliland for the upcoming negotiations with Ethiopia scheduled to take place in Fall 2016.  Finally, TAF funding permitted additional consultations with key ministers to take place to review how Somaliland can initiate discussions in trade in services with Ethiopia.
