Maadaama aan ka shaqeynayay cilmibaarisyo la xiriira doorashooyinka Soomaaliya tan iyo sanadkii 2015, waxaan fahamsanahay culeyska ay leedahay in la qabto doorashooyin iyadoo ay jiraan kalsooni darro baahsan, heshiiska siyaasadeed uu qabyo yahay, iyo hay’adaha dowladda oo weli curdan ah.

Opportunities And Challenges For Somalia’s Membership To The East African Community

The paper indicates that there are, inevitably, opportunities linked to Somalia’s new membership of the EAC. These include allying with the region against insecurity, the standardization of laws and procedures, and enabling the country to adhere to international systems of finance, economy and technology. Integration will allow Somalis from the blue economy (Somalia lies on the Indian Ocean and Red Sea) to invest competitively in the EAC, bringing with it the possibility of opportunities for job creation. The study recommends that the Somali government carefully consider addressing the challenges presented both here and elsewhere.
