Dear citizens of Somalia,

It is with great pleasure and honor that I address you as the Minister of Commerce and Industry of Somalia. I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to serve our nation and contribute to the economic development and prosperity of our beloved country.

Commerce and industry play a pivotal role in driving economic growth, creating jobs, and improving the livelihoods of our people. At the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, we recognize the immense potential within our nation and are committed to harnessing it to build a prosperous future for all.

We are well aware of the challenges that lie ahead, but rest assured, we are determined to overcome them. Our focus lies on implementing robust policies, forging strategic partnerships, and driving effective, transparent, and accountable governance to drive our economy forward.

We are fully committed to creating a favorable business environment that attracts both domestic and foreign investors. By fostering an ecosystem of innovation, entrepreneurship, and fair competition, we aim to provide our local businesses with the necessary tools and support to thrive in the global marketplace.

In line with our commitment to trade facilitation, we will work tirelessly to streamline processes, reduce barriers, and enhance efficiency in our import and export procedures. We understand the importance of seamless trade for economic growth and will collaborate closely with relevant government agencies to ensure compliance with international standards and best practices.

Our vision extends beyond trade facilitation. We are devoted to promoting the development of key industries within Somalia. By identifying sectors with high growth potential, providing incentives, and fostering an environment conducive to industrial innovation, we aim to attract investments, create employment opportunities, and strengthen our industrial capabilities.

Furthermore, we recognize the significance of regional integration and international cooperation. We will actively engage with our neighboring countries, regional bodies, and international organizations to enhance trade ties, harmonize trade policies, and leverage regional resources for the collective benefit of all participating nations.

Transparency, accountability, and good governance are principles we hold dear. We are committed to ensuring that our operations are conducted in an open and accountable manner, with a firm commitment to combatting corruption and promoting sustainable practices.

I am confident that together, with the support and collaboration from our dedicated team at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, the private sector, and the Somali people, we can unlock the immense economic potential of our nation. Let us join hands and work towards a prosperous future where every Somali citizen can benefit from the growth and opportunities that lie ahead.

Thank you for your unwavering support, and I look forward to the journey ahead.
